This is just so cool! Here's an excerpt from the article:
A single impression mould used in the injection moulding of a Tupperware
'Mix-n-stor' container, shown with a container sitting in the mould casing. The
container is made from polythene. Tupperware was developed by an American, Earl
Tupper, in the mid 1940s. Polythene was discovered in 1933 by Reginald Gibson
and Eric Fawcett, two scientists working at ICI's research laboratory at
Winnington, Durham, as the result of a laboratory accident. The first patents
for polythene were registered in 1936, and a year later the first practical use
for the material, as a film, was discovered. Polythene was used as an insulating
material for radar cables during World War II, and the substance was a closely
guarded secret. After the war it began to be produced commercially.

Hello! I'm Holly. Nice to meet you.
I love vintage Tupperware and love to buy and sell! No, I'm not a Tupperware lady... I like the vintage stuff. The stuff Grandma used to have.
This blog is my attempt to provide lots of information and goodies about collecting vintage Tupperware. There isn't much out there for collectors, so I thought I'd create my own resources and share it with others.
There are a few great links of interest (see my links).
Otherwise, stay-tuned. Subscribe! There's more to come!
