Windowed Button with Sailboat
Back in February of this year I posted a "windowed button" (featuring a horse) with the promise of more buttons like this to come. Here's another variety with a smooth-sailing sailboat—sighted on a shiny blue tide. The image of the serenely passing boat is nestled under a domed piece of glass and all is mounted on a cream tone of Bakelite. I call these windowed buttons because of the way the image is framed picturesquely as if looking out of a window. In this case, the sailboat comes into view like a dreamy vision on a summery seascape. It's a postcard from the past and a button in one.
