Autumn is my favorite season and here's a button to commemorate its bristly beauty and the rich yellows of nature that highlight this time of year. A highly carved piece of cream-tone Bakelite with three leaves forming an Art Deco feast for the eyes, this antiquated button is the King of Fanciness. Like part of a showgirl's costume, circa 1925, I see an old-time cabaret every time I study this leafy relic. On that note, here's a befitting quote by the French playwright and essayist, Albert Camus: Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
