Another Art Deco Showstopper
Last month I spotlighted a whole week of Art Deco buttons from the 1920's—real wowzers and masterpieces of Bakelite. Today I'm posting another of those spiffy gems. This one's a shadowy, chocolate zinger with a carving that's right out of La La Land. The design is strictly Art Deco and a quintessential example of how Bakelite provided a surface for so much incredible style. This button single-handedly makes me wish I'd been alive during the années folles, which is a French term for the "crazy years."
