Cookies: Smurfy Wonders
Some Bakelite collectors call these "mushroom buttons" while others call them "bow ties," due to the shape of their dressy stripes. I think another name for them could be "Smurfy Wonders," but I don't expect this will catch on. The buttonholes on these stubby tots go through their bases. Situated at a few different angles, I tried to capture their quirky structure and funny curves. Definitely among the tiniest of the Bakelite cookie buttons, I only have three of these peewee gobbets.
