Some Bakelite cookie buttons came in a style that's called a pressed button, referring to the factory process of buttons being stamped by mechanized tools. These three buttons show a variety of pressings: there's a pleated one in black that reminds me of a warped phonograph record, a bumpy-skinned newt in orange and a chocolate model with a brickwork pattern. My button-dealing friend, Doreen, introduced me to Bakelite cookies that are pressed and I think they're artful and quirky, which is how I like my buttons.
