Laced Squares

Concluding this week of square-shaped buttons, here's one of my most peculiar Bakelite button sets. Five buttons in a sunlit tone of green (bright lime), come with a matching Bakelite buckle. What's more, each piece is done up with a bit of well-turned-out lacework. The effect is a tidy gang of neatly bound buttons. Just imagine these green humdingers on a savvy Sally's old-time party frock. Straight out of the 1930's.
