Let the Sunshine In!

Going way back, these are some of the first antique buttons that I ever bought. Aside from the fact that they're Bakelite, they have a distinguished charm that points to the Depression era. The color is orange juice, a rich and sunny shade that explodes with inner swirling and a look of molten activity. These are flower buttons, mildly carved to resemble poppies. I think of them as two juicy suns.
