Huge Bakelite Vintage Estate Button with Metal Embellishment & Early Plastic Stone Large
This fabulous vintage button is made of Bakelite in a gorgeous dark chocolate brown color. It tests positive to be Bakelite with Simichrome and we guarantee this to be old. It is most unusual - it has a brass colored metal embellishment and is also prong set with an elongated early plastic stone in a swirled cream yellow color. The button is large and measures about 2 1/8" across by about 1/3" thick including the domed early plastic stone (the Bakelite part measures slightly over 1/8“ thick). Good vintage condition with age wear including darkening to the metalwork and the metal shank loop has some verdigris and rust. The metal and stone are connected and spin freely and the shank also spins independently - it’s just the way this was made. The stone is set asymmetrically onto the metal as seen - one of the charms of having something that was put together by hand rather than machine. In addition to looking gorgeous on your favorite coat or jacket, this would also look amazing on a hat, belt or purse! You will love this!!!
