Cookies: Pinwheels!

Another style of Bakelite cookie button is the pinwheel, or fan blade, design. These cookies have the look of art deco ventilators. Notice there are three sizes here. I purchased them all, one by one, from different button buffs and antique dealers around the USA. The big brown one came from a Bakelite collector who manages a booth at a "vintage finds" flea market in Miami, Florida. These buttons were made in the 1920's.
