Cherry Buckets with Teeth on the Brims

A small button has to be pretty impressive in order for me to add it to my collection. I like the bigger varieties with an impactful heft. These two buttons only measure slightly over half-an-inch across, but aside from their small dimensions they are quite unusual. I call them cherry buckets, but what's most interesting about these buttons is the gear-like motif on the brims. I flipped one of them over to show how rounded these are. Made in the 1930's, these little buckets have some bite.
