Black Suns/Art Deco

"Showgirl Buttons" is what I call this pair of Bakelite sistersdue to the art deco pattern they flaunt so strikingly like a couple of theatrical suns. To the casual eye, these are black buttons, but with the lighting upped to the max on my camera you can see a bluish hue coming off of these fancy ladies. A little-known fact: it's not uncommon for black Bakelite to go blue in the light.
