Chocolate Screwball

Another one of my Bakelite oddities, this button blends an Art Deco pattern with a little bit of outer space. I still can't decide if the upraised sphere in the middle of the button was attached separately in the manufactural process or if it's actually part of the bottom layer of the Bakelite. Either way, this is a heavily carved button with whirls and gashes galore. If I didn't know any better I'd think this was a Cadbury UFO.
