You better believe I don't throw around the word "wowser" on behalf of any old button. I stand by my word. This button's a rare superstar in terms of design, scale and structure. It's Bakelite: alternating in the middle square with root beer and apple juice stripes and then augmented at both ends in wide pieces of rounded, root beer bumpers. All in all, this button is made up of 8 Bakelite sections—each of them fitted together to form this vast hunk of flapper-approved style. Imagine it: the designer coat this button hung on must've been a majorly vogue triumph.
