Squares & Gangsters

I've posted many square-shaped buttons since the inception of this blog, but starting today I'm showcasing a full week of squareskicking things off with these handsome two-tone buttons in licorice and creamed corn. These buttons test positive for Bakelite and were made in the 1920's. Together they form a sort of Art Deco quartet. Speaking of quartets, here's a mugshot of four gangsters from the 1920's. I have a feeling that these gentlemen are not squares:
