As we delve into a week rich with holiday traditions, I'm photographing buttons that remind me of the time-honored foodstuffs one might find on the table during Thanksgiving here in the United States. Pass the cranberry sauce! This ultra-smooth button surprised me by testing positive for Bakelite since it has the texture and appearance of maroon glass. Come mealtime, I usually pass on the cranberry sauce, but this lustrous octagon looks downright delectable. Made in the 1930's.
