Highly collectible, these Bakelite "smile buttons" are on every antique hunter's wish-list. Notice the different placement of the grooved lines on these Art Deco characters and how the lines have an effect on the buttons' facial impression. What are these buttons so cheery about? Maybe these wisecrackers need to quiet down. In mid-laugh, they look like a daffy twosome on their way to the psychiatric hospital.
