Halloween Figure Buttons
Halloween cheers! Today marks my all-time favorite holiday with four Bakelite figure buttons. Rarest of all is the witch, which I have never seen without a few daubs of paint on her hat and broomstick. The cat too, is not easy to find. Bakelite figure buttons are "factory pressed" and flimsier than most Bakelite forms, but they're fun to collect (and addictive too). In my estimate, I believe that there are between 60 and 70 varieties of pressed Bakelite figure buttons floating around out there. circa 1930.
