Last year I purchased this button from my friend Doreen, who never runs out of luck when it comes to finding the best of the best (vintage) black buttons out there. In our correspondence, she named this one "the panther paw" and that's definitely a fitting description of this primitive beauty in licorice Bakelite. An art deco button without doubt, the four lobes alternate between smooth and chiseled. It's a wild zinger from the Roaring Twenties and by "roaring" I'm talking about a panther's holler.
