Good morning to Lucite buttons!
Lucite was patented by the Dupont Co and swept the button world with its intricate carving possibilities. Often there are images floating around inside the plastic, as in the roses above.
Lots of time there were sparkles inside. The lucite didn’t yellow over time and still is pretty clear today. I do love my little tiny lucite button, above, but hard to capture a good photo of its roses.
I’m putting this little green guy in the lucite compartment today–not sure –maybe it’s more “plastic” than lucite, but please give me a little leeway here. (After all, it’s MY blog.)
It’s a three-ply piece and has 9 little rhinestones inserted. Some of them have an amber colored look–just discolored I think.
So that’s a little tour down lucite-button-memory lane. Tomorrow—different category!
