When my friend Doreen showed me this button with its high domed escutcheon, my mind promptly went to an Islamic house of worship on the skyline of Saudi Arabia. It's a chocolate structure with deeply sliced grooves going all the way around. Pure Bakelite and quite a hardy dose of it, Doreen let me buy this button from her last year and it still amazes me. When Bakelite buttons look like tiny edifices, I'm sold!
