Belgian Bowls

Today's buttons are a mother-daughter set of Bakelite bowls in the same colors and striped order of the Belgian flag. A strip of deep butterscotch Bakelite is sandwiched between cherry red and licorice black. Two-tone buttons in Bakelite are highly desirable enough, so imagine my excitement when I found these tricolor bowls at some point during my antique button hunting. Needless to say, these bowled me over.
