Charlesworth Bandalasta

Charlesworths have teamed up with Brookes & Adams Ltd www.banda.co.ukand BIP http://www.bip.co.uk/ to make use of the original moulds & materials to bring back a range of decorative moulded Bandalasta first produce by Brookes & Adams in the 1920's "the ideal picnic and dainty table ware".

All the items are hand made & finished in England in Beetle urea & melamine along with bakelite phenolics. The marbling means that no two pieces are identical but are blended from the same base colours so sets can be built up. If an item is not listed in a colour you would like please contact us. 


A range of articles for camping, caravaning, yachting along with tableware for the home. These mouldings were known for their light bright colours & marbled effects, a first for plastic, which until the invention by BIP of their Beetle urea formaldehyde in 1924 had been restricted the dark colours of Bakelite.
