Doreen, my five-star friend and key advisor in Bakelite button hunting, sold me this button a few years ago in a mutual fever-of-excitement over such a majestic find. The base of this queenly vision is an orangey mirage of apple juice Bakelite (or the color-variety we call iced tea). Next up is a brass crown eclipsed by a jet-black bead. If this ladylike button came to life, she would incite wars, win applause and demand cake. No doubt about it, this dame is solid royalty.
