So dramatic and jewel-like, this old button from the 1920's performs all the razzle-dazzle tricks of classic Bakelite. Every sculpted slant and groove is a shiny intrigue to me. It's like looking at some bizarro fish that jumped out of a magic lagoon. Split diagonally between butterscotch and bright cherry red, I've never seen a carved button quite like this one. Truth be told, I'd probably run into a burning building to rescue this two-tone knockout. Commemorating the 200th post on this blog, I've saved this button for a special occasion.
