Mississippi Mud

Finally, here's a color of Bakelite that's not named after a food. This one's called Mississippi mud. It's chocolate Bakelite, but with swirls of black that are visible on this button amid the carved tufts of wheat. An ode to America's Cotton States in the Deep South, when I look at this button I feel like I'm having a vision of a prairie vista. Makes me wanna jump in the Mississippi. Yee-Haw!
