Big Apple Juice Bakelite Button Fancy Center 1940s Sewing Notion. Wonderful size!
Measures 1-1/4 inch across and is just shy of 1/4 inch thick excluding the decorative flower.
Circa 1945 this over sized, THICK, Bakelite button is transparent "Apple Juice". It was probably used on a fur or wool coat in it's first life.
It is a wonderful clear apple juice color. There are two carved circles with a brass colored plastic decoration in the center. It is smoothly polished and feels like butter in the hand. It is a SWEET sewing TREAT!
It would be magnificent as the closure to a custom designed purse. And, wouldn't it be wonderful as the closure on a cape! Let your imagination be your guide. If you make artisan jewelry this could be the basis for a stunning brooch.
The top is in lovely condition as is the plastic decoration. There are two very small polished chips on the back. I believe these are from the original cutting as they have been polished smooth.
Please note the domed shape on top. The back is flat and is set with a strong metal shank.
