Apple Juice Logs & Leaves

It's Christmas Eve and in light of so many stockings dangling over so many fireplaces, here's a pair of carved log buttons in apple juice Bakelite. Adorned with leaf-shaped escutcheons made of gold chrome, there's something festive about these vintage coat accessories. Clink them together and they're guaranteed to provide the beat for God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen. But in all seriousness, I'm forever oohing and aahing at the impressive stateliness of these major charmers. Circa 1935.
