Major Art Deco here, these lustrous red bombshells are some of my best-loved Bakelite. For a long time I only had three of these and then I found the fourth at an antique shop in Buffalo, New York. Something about these buttons makes me think of the old Fritz Lang movie, Metropolis. In my book, these are the epitome of 1920's smarts & style. They look quite a bit like toy tops with nifty stairways forming their pointy zeniths. Really, I can't get enough of these hot little rockets. Somebody slap me before I go out in search for a fifth.
