Rootbeer Architecture

What I love about Art Deco buttons is the heavily stylized angularities that often crop up in the geometric contours of 1920's craftsmanship. This mondo knockout in chocolate Bakelite has a rootbeer banister winding up its middle like a zigzag serpent. Terribly luxurious and layered with metropolitan flair, it's less a button than a strangely bewitching edifice.
