What is the difference between bakelite and lucite?

The attractiveness of early plastics cause me to do a little digging. Collectics offer a educational article on early plastics titled  BAKELITE, LUCITE, CELLULOID, AND CATALIN INFORMATION, HISTORY, IDENTIFICATION.

Visit the
Bakelite Museum in Germany. The Bakelite hair dryer (pictured) is from the collection. It was produced before 1953 by Fritz Baumgartner. The handle is wooden.
