2-Tone: Stripes

Funny thing about this 2-tone button: it's kattywampus. Notice how the perimeter is kind of wobbly as opposed to being a perfectly formed circle. The creamed corn stripes are a bit wonky too. That's what I love about this Bakelite misfit. It's a little bit askew as if it's just beginning to melt. If we made Bakelite buttons in our kitchens, I'll bet this is how they would turn out.
