Toggle Tuesday: Jellybeans

Last week I posted a set of rootbeer gumdrops. Today I'm spotlighting a threesome of glistening, cherry jellybeans. The comparison between Bakelite buttons and diverse candy items just goes on and on. What I love about these confectionary beans is the slits or "gills" that, without question, place them in the Art Deco genre of the 1920's. I purchased these toggles last month from an antique dealer in Kansas and have not been able to stop looking at them. If the Good Ship Lollipop had the means to participate in candied warfare, these would be the ship's melt-in-your-mouth torpedoes. Mighty dee-lish!
