Lime Juice Daisy

Lime juice—a rare color of Bakelite that confirms its existence here in the shape of a shiny flower (maybe a lilac or a forget-me-not). Luscious swirls in pale green swim through this translucent blossom like tangled capillaries. In the light of my balcony, this piece of Bakelite retains an orange glow around its edges. It's an unusual button in a color that I wish I saw more often in my quest for hard-to-find Bakelite.
