ART DECO: Quintessential

High on the pedestal of my most spectacular buttons sits this Art Deco paragon in licorice and apple juice Bakelite. The man who sold me this button said that he'd taken it off of a fur coat that was made between 1925 and 1929 by the fashion house known as Fendi. Alas, the coat was infested with old fleas doing the Charleston in the fusty mink fibers, but oh how the buttons live on! Just gaze at that design. Gadzooks!!!
