Here's a button that desperately wants to be a Christmas tree ornament. The red Bakelite is unusual in that it's marbled. The bottom layer of the Bakelite is the color known as split pea soup. It's an odd color-combo and I wonder what this button was a part of, costume-wise? At any rate, I'm a fanatic when it comes to 2-tone Bakelite and so starting next month I'm going to post a whole week of dual color fusions. Consider this the forerunner to a ritzy expo of 2-tone buttons, coming soon in January. Also, Merry Christmas!
