Big Rock Candy Mountain!
Every now and then I find a button that defies buttonhood and appears to be evolving into some other thing. That's what seems to be happening with this multistory hunk of chocolate Bakelite layered over a base of root beer. Actually, there are four tiers of these alternating colors that make this button a soaring extravaganza. I don't know how this burly studmuffin would've fit through a buttonhole. The bottom layer is a bulging triangle that scoops inwards on all three sides to an angular top-layer that's absolutely bonkers. One of my Bakelite trophies, I totally LOVE this button.
