A Button within a Button!


Here's my Friday wowser. This oversized button measures more than 2 inches across. The outer frame is a ten-lobed splash in bright brown. Embedded in the chocolate Bakelite is an apple juice centerpiece with an underside that's been etched with a star-like design, which could be the hybrid of a snowflake and a marijuana leaf. The lady who sold me this button told me that she'd cut it off of a fur coat from the 1930's. In my quest for Bakelite buttons, I've never seen another one like it.
