Four Large vintage carved Bakelite buttons in swirling faux tortoise shell.
Each was tested and is authentic Bakelite circa 1950. They measure about 1 - 3/8 inch across the face, are 1/8 inch THICK. They have fabulous shades of swirling brown and golds to imitate tortoiseshell.
Note: Bakelite, when produced to have accents or varied shapes had to be carved. It was not a plastic that could be molded. So, each of these buttons, with concentric circle centers was hand carved. They are polished to a satin finish. There are embedded metal loop shanks.
All four are in above excellent condition. White spots in the pictures are reflection or dust, not damage.
