A Bow, circa 1929

It's Day Three of a whole week in which I'm posting vintage buttons shaped like things outside of the accustomed formations we usually associate with buttons. So here's a bow button in a bright shade of maroon. The make of these can be tricky. I've seen all kinds of bow-shaped buttons and nine out of ten times they're made of ghastly celluloid from the 1960's. This one tested positive for Bakelite.
