Butter Dollop

If you squeezed a tablespoon of margarine through one of those hand-held piping bags with a star-shaped nozzle, this might be the buttery frill you'd plunk onto a cake. I saw a red button just like this a few days ago at an antique shop in Kansas City, but I didn't buy it since I already own this creamy one-in-a-million. Pure vintage Bakelite, this old thing is the duck's quack. Circa 1925.
