Granny's Bouquet

Here's a Bakelite button topped with a six-flowered posy in nickel, an escutcheon that reminds me of the ironwork on the buildings around Rockefeller Center in New York City. I always think of this as a grandmotherly button. The Bakelite base is a dishy, glowing example of apple juice. Bathing in the sun, this old button could pass for a juicy dewdrop in a metal bonnet.
