Clash of Shadows

Look into this swirled mass of rootbeer Bakelite fused with apple juice Bakelite and get hypnotized by the battle between light and dark. It looks more like a petri dish than a button, but this petaled splendor comes straight off of a flapper's winter coat. Rubbing my thumb over the top of this cloudy eclipse, I count this among my buttons with a supernatural flavor. Made in the 1920's.
