They look fiery, don't they? Last night I took this picture of these Bakelite, 4-hole buttons and they seem to have gained a reddish luster from the glow of the sunset. Anyway, it's just a trick of the light. These are root beer buttons, dating back to the 1930's. The chunkiness of these old-timers makes them look like a couple of tires that flew off the family station wagon.
