Cookies: Bright Old Wisecrackers
Continuing from last Friday with Bakelite cookie buttons, I selected these two for today's post since I wanted something sunny and quintessential to kick off the week. Both of these buttons shine with gladsome colors and an elevated hexagon design. As this month will demonstrate, Bakelite cookie buttons constitute a carnival of varicolored patterns. This old pair could've dotted a clown's uniform.
