Swoosh! Here's an antique button that dreams of becoming a boomerang. A sort of elongated oval in burgundy, the button sports agloss lamination that still glistens after 8 or 9 decadesof existence. Despite the glaze, this old bird did test positive for Bakelite. With its streamlinedshape and smooth design, I look at this button and see something born for hard-flung air travel. circa 1930.
