Celebrating the 300th post on this blog, here's a set of buttons that are undoubtedly among my greatest finds. A green Bakelite base gives rise to a bright orange layer (also Bakelite) and a shiny butterscotch top segment that is pure Bakelite as well. A Bakelite bonanza! Dating back to the 1930's, these strikingly colorful buttons are big, bold and bodacious. When vintage buttons are this beautiful, they're not so much buttons as they are specimens of objet d'art.
