Warped 'n Groovy

Like a vinyl record by The Beatles that got left out in the sun, this Bakelite button (in the color known as apple juice), is a twisted hippie. It's not that the Bakelite factory caught on fire or a case of some accidental heat that led to this button's malformation. No, this groovy freak was made distortionally. I like to think of it as a button that was ahead of its time. Made in the Roaring Twenties with an eye on 1960's psychedelia.
