Pillow Buttons

Known as "pillow buttons" or simply "pillows" among collectors, these Bakelite buttons are pudgy nuggets with no lack of charm. The larger sized one in the middle is my favorite, a radiant vision in the sunny color of a custard square. Pillowy in shape and yet curiously angular, these robust babies roll around in the palm of my hand like an animated set of porky gemstones. And no, you may not fluff my Bakelite pillows.
