Bakelite Bits: Yellow

Today's post ends my week-long series of "Bakelite Bits" or mini-buttons, many of which measure less than half-an-inch across. In tones of yellow (mostly creamed corn), the buttons above convey a sunny hodgepodge of Bakelite designs. Honorable mentions go to the art deco "bomb button" with tiered ends in the lower right-hand corner and the centralized "eyeball button" with an outer layer that is celluloid covering a Bakelite orb in butterscotch. And that's it for this week of Bakelite bits!
