Doesn't this cheerful Art Deco orange light up your face with a smile, whenever you see it? That's usually on jewelry or pottery, but here it adorns a 6-inch button hook for your vanity.

Its vivid Bakelite handle comprises 3 3/4 inches of that length. Styled in a bold V shape; it's flat at the back, but the front has step-cut sides that are hard to photograph due to the glare. Along with the width, the thickness of the handle also increases gradually toward the top, for a powerful sense of streamlined motion.

The piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks, only a few superficial scratches, and the metal hook shows no rust and is securely attached. Besides being ornamental, this could still be very useful for doing up evening gloves. It would be a charming small gift for anyone who enjoys sewing collectibles, if you can part with it.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Thanks for looking!
