Art Deco Tangerine

Starkly unadorned and definitive of the 1920's, this Art Deco paragon comes from a forgotten world of bold minimalism. Sometimes the "less is more" concept explodes with style and that's the case with this smart sunbather of a button. The Bakelite is a pastel orange, but verging on a tone of peach that I seldom see in Bakelite world. Maybe it would be accurate to call this a shade of vintage Creamsicle? At any rate, this is a large button with a smooth and witty confidence that hollers 1925. Even after all these years, this old baby is still up to the minute.
