 Who Made The First Ever Plastic-Bodied Clarinet?

That's plastic/resin and not ebonite/hard rubber as that's been used since the 19th Century.

I assume plastics such as cellulose, casein or Bakelite were the first plastics tried and used for the first commercially available plastic clarinets, but who was the first company to offer successful plastic or resin bodied clarinets (and when)?
