Creamed Spinach

This week I'm showcasing Bakelite buttons in colors that aren't easy to come by. This highly collectible green variation is called creamed spinach. Why not creamed asparagus or creamed brussels sprout? I have no clue. What I do know is that this verdant damsel is marbleized with squiggly veins that curl and meander like yellow smoke. This is a large button that measures two inches across, practically a vegetarian's dinner! A button high in folic acid and dietary fibers.
