Dinosaur Eggs

All month long I've been looking forward to sharing this photo of my 3 Bakelite dragon egg buttons in a funky shade of iguana-butt green! See how the edges along the dots are exhibiting a rusty tinge of orange? That's an aging effect that happens to green Bakelite sometimes. At any rate, I bought these eccentric toads from a fellow-Bakelite collector in California who boasts some of the most unusual Bakelite I've ever seen. Like avocados from Mars, these are among my favorite buttons.
