This whole month I've been showcasing Bakelite cookie buttons and memorializing this roundup of quaint rarities—all from the world of vintage plastic. In particular, I'm keen on this pair of striped buttons. Like masked gangsters, these cookies are more or less Bonnie and Clyde in Bakelite form. Bang! Bang! Straight out of the same year Ethel Waters sang "Stormy Weather" at The Cotton Club.
