Toggle Tuesday: Dark Ovals

These toggles have been in my collection for quite some time and I always think they resemble a couple of charred almonds or the petrified eyes of a dybbuk. Magic shadow nuggets! In my perusals of antique shops I sometimes see this football-shaped button in various shades of butterscotch, but this particular pair of gorilla tears is about as pitch-black as Bakelite ever gets.
