Sterling Stripe

As I mentioned last Monday, starting today I'm posting an entire week of Bakelite buttons with various metal components. This maroon button is belted with a sterling piece that's divvied into 7 squares traveling over the button like a train track. The way the light hits the silver, I see a pinkish iridescence here that's very pretty. The maroon plastic is legit Bakelite, probably from the 1930's.
