Cookies: The Groovy Ones

Fluted, ridged, grooved, ribbed: how would you describe these Bakelite cookie buttons with their fanned-out seams? I call these buttons "scalloped" because they look to me like comely seashells. They are fairly large, measuring 1.5 inches across. Free from the dents and dings that are common on vintage buttons, these old beauties have fared well since their heyday in the 1930's.
