It might be my favorite scene from any movie when Charlie Bucket finds a golden ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It's a moment of consummate happiness that stays exciting for me every time I go back and watch it. But what's this to do with buttons? Well, I'll tell you... Picked for today's Bakelite presentation, I'm showcasing two buttons in milk chocolate Bakelite with grooved patterns that really do smack of creamy edibles. Of course, these are not actual servings of chocolate, but for me every Bakelite button as winsome as these is as good as a melt-in-your-mouth Wonka Bar.
Thank you, Roald Dahl.
