In India, there are plastic chairs that are suggestive of carved ivory.
American-designed chairs, originally wooden, some made in steel and aluminum, before plastics came along:
In India, they make plastic versions of the clay water pots they made for a long time. Before plastic, they were metal.
Where I live (and I don't know whether it's all of my ancestry's neighborhoods, too), we have plastic buckets that are like the metal buckets we had before that were the same shape as the wooden buckets that were made way before my time.
We also have plastic jugs, like for milk and for maple syrup, that are like things that were made of glass before, that were like things made of pottery before that.
This topic has sat unfinished for a while. I'll post it and bring photos back to it as I come to them.
