Lime Parfait, Anyone?

Of all the colors of Bakelite, I think it's the gamut of greens that demonstrates the most variation: emerald, moss, lime and so on. This interestingly cut square has a bright glow and a waxy surface that looks a bit like pistachio pudding, aloe vera, Nickelodeon slime, melon Jell-O, or maybe even ectoplasm! Despite its viscous appearance, this button is not the least bit slimy. Just a green weirdo with ties to the Roaring Twenties.
