Bakelite Bits: Licorice

It's Day 2 of my "Bakelite Bits" Week and here's a smattering of five little buttons in black, otherwise known as licorice Bakelite. Aside from the obviously noteworthy duck, honorable mentions go to the jellybean-shaped toggle with carved details and also the art deco, jewel-cut button featuring a tiered design and bottom layer made of apple juice Bakelite. I have a taste for black licorice and could just about eat these buttony antiques. From the 1920's.
