Art Deco Idealized

You could comb your hair with this button if you had to. The diagonal cuts on this butterscotch rake are a case in point when it comes to the Art Deco style that I like to cite so often in these fancy old buttons, "a style characterized by precise and boldly delineated geometric shapes" (and that's the dictionary talking). Everybody knows how much I love Bakelite buttons, but when those buttons possess this much 1920's zing, I fall straight off of my rocking horse.
