MATTER + OBJECT { BUTTON }

Tom’s Aunt spent her entire inheritance on buttons. Something in the order of two hundred thousand dollars. While there’s something deplorable about squandering so much cash, I sort of admire people driven by unusual passions.

These buttons are an airmail treasure from Berlin, made by the button man Paul Knopf. The first buttons are plum pits and the second is carved from bone.
