Brown Sugar Whirl

Today's Bakelite button is a bit unusual in that it's brown, but with a wet-looking shine that I don't see too often in brown Bakelite. It almost looks like a piece of hard candy that's been sucked on in the gradual meltdown of a digested sweet. That probably sounds a little gross, but this is not a gross button. On the contrary, this polished spiral is some first-rate Bakelite with a molasses gleam.
