A heavy black cast Bakelite base unit for Kiddicraft Self-Locking Building Bricks.
The weight and material of the base may seem anomalous given that the bricks themselves were injection-moulded, but given the size of the piece, and the importance of it not warping, casting the piece in bakelite was probably a way to get around the limitations of early injection-moulding machines and produce a piece that was more stable.
