Bronze Gardenias

Newly acquired, here's a trio of Bakelite buttons in a scarcely seen color that rides the line between dark orange and bronze. Animated and deeply cut/carved, these lively blossoms almost appear to be dancing. The lady who sold me these buttons found them years ago at an estate sale with other fashionable relics believed to go back to the early 1930's.
