Style in a Frame

Couldn't you just see this button coming down 5th Avenue on the coat of some voguish flapper in a swarm of her "swell beaus" circa 1929? That's likely where this button came from since it definitely dates back to the Jazz Age (and was purchased in NYC). A two-tone button, the inner section is orange juice Bakelite set in a black frame, which has also tested positive for Bakelite. This old baby is a foxy piece of retro pizzazz.
