Hurricanes on Potato Chips
No other Bakelite buttons in my collection have this level of incredible swirling. Look closely at these wafer-like weirdos and you will see storms a-brewing! I wonder if this is a case of brown Bakelite that was mixed with a lighter shade during the production process. Was a factory worker feeling experimental...or was he reckless? Did machines collide resulting in this amazing blend of vintage plastic? Whatever the case, these are some well-turned-out buttons and I suspect they are quite uncommon. Hooray for serendipity!
