Cookies: Super-carved!

Out of all the Bakelite cookie buttons I've seen, this style is by far the most carved. Not just carved, these buttons are perforated. Aside from their buttonholes, there are six apertures in each of these buttons. As a set of three, they look like a squadron of fighting airships from the DC Universe. Then again, their sculpted grooves remind me of the Cologne Cathedral. Not your everyday buttons.
