Quintessential Bakelite

A button oozing with carved detail, this vintage knockout boasts a distinctive "suction cup" design mingled with a three-petaled concept. A bit of patina rests in some of the hewn craftwork. So what? A little smut never killed the cat. This button could be a contender for the definitive example of a Bakelite coat fixture. It possesses a dash of everything: sculpted artistry, balance, urbanity, style, pluck and a pitch-black stateliness.
