I recently bought U&lc of this gothic condensed but I’m not familiar with the the formed plastic with dovetail joint.
Can someone tell me the history/process please?
The body is wood and seems to old but the top has me puzzled.

Hopefully the wood type experts will weigh in, but, it looks to me to be of the celluloid type from the late 1880’s.
Looks to me like a delicious vanilla frosted chocolate cake in this picture! Mmmm!
h had a birthday. Love the comment. Celluloid type from late 1880’s, thanks John you’re correct.
Never thought of wood type as desert. Not a bad idea at that!
I had wondered if type could be made this way. Thanks.
