Fresh Squeezed OJ
Fluid swirls run through this button like a juicy cloud. This is what I call "Orange Juice" Bakelite, though I'm not ruling out other descriptive terms. Some would classify this as a butterscotch button with inner flourishes, or apple juice with an injection of orange streaks. Hold this button up to the light and it almost looks like there's a nebulous galaxy floating inside of it. Here on my blog, I will refer to this kind of Bakelite as Orange Juice. I don't know what I do to attract so many OJ buttons into my collection, but I have quite a few of them. This one is a contender for best Art Deco design.
