Studded Iced Tea

On the spectrum of Bakelite's many colors there's an unusual tone known as iced tea that lies between apple juce and rootbeer. These iced tea buttons are studded with metal pins that were injected into the Bakelite during the manufactural process. As is the case with many of my Bakelite buttons, I purchased these from my good friend and fellow button-enthusiast, Doreen, who runs a vintage button emporium out of her home in Michigan. I can't endorse Doreen's business enough. Her wealth of buttons (of all makes, categories and styles) is absolutely kaleidoscopic.
