It's the last day of August and if the kids aren't already back in school, they will be soon. Here's a scholarly button that I've always held in high regard. A brownish gold cement holds the green and black squares of Bakelite together, giving the button a striped accent. If this button had a name, it'd probably be Wesley or Irwin. I count this button among my most snazzy and studious finds—circa the 1920's.
