Wiki: "Celluloid is considered the first thermoplastic, invented in the mid to late 19th century. It has the look of ivory, and became widely as a much cheaper and easier substitute for ivory, horn or other expensive animal products. "Ivorine" or "French Ivory" are other names. It was also used for dressing table sets, dolls, picture frames, charms, hat pins, buttons, buckles, stringed instrument parts, accordions, fountain pens, cutlery handles and kitchen items."
