The Rusty Helicopter

Here's an old button that I've had for quite some time. It's a watered down glass of apple juice (Bakelite) in its most voluptuous formbarely caverd and smooth as a bubble. The tarnished escutcheon isn't screwed on too tightly and it actually spins. Basically, this vintage baby sports a creaky propeller. A button destined for flight, maybe?
