Lucious Lucite for Frida


About this design:

Just a few pics of some vintage Lucite for Frida to see. These are Moonglow, and probably produced in the 70's. The "pearl" buttons on cardigan sweaters of the time were actually made from Lucite.
Lucite was originally developed by DuPont for military applications, such as the nosecones of aircraft. Look at how it's evolved!

Components:

Lots of Lucite!
