Leaning Logs

My favorite thing about these slanted buttons is the eye-like slits that evoke the art deco style of the 1920's and 30's. Aside from that, these creamed corn twins are the perfect example of buttons that provide the celebratory Bakelite clack, which is the sound that collectors swear by when it comes to identifying Bakelite. Tap two pieces of true Bakelite together and the giveaway clack is guaranteed. In search of that revealing timbre, these old logs have definitely got it.
