Mother's Day Button
Mother's Day is just around the corner and this morning I asked myself, "Of all of my buttons, which one reminds me the most of my mom?" The winner is this extra bright and sensationally gorgeous button in first-class cherry red. Everything about this button emits a nifty charisma. The Bakelite is carved into a chic art deco image that's lent itself to an ideal amount of patina resting in the chiseled flower and leaves. Suddenly, the botanical design is cut off by three glossy folds in the Bakelite, a feature that smacks of 1920's-era style and dramatic visual appeal. A pretty button for a pretty lady (maybe even a flapper!), this old treasure is the height of Bakelite razzle-dazzle.
