Gold-Laced Nugget

How's this for fancy Bakelite? It's a chunky shard of towering rootbeer that's got an interesting tilt. Giant as the Matterhorn and laced in pleated metal, it looks like this button's been strapped down. Truly a nugget, I don't remember where I found this fetching alp. It's been in my collection for quite some time and I count it among my chicest oddities. (Tested positive for Bakelite, circa 1930).
