Golden Tsunami

Earlier this summer, my friend Doreen emailed me the news of finding this button, which she later let me buy. In terms of vintage plastic it's nothing too spectacular with a plain slab of dark brown Bakelite as the base for a most striking escutcheon. Look at that undulating design! I like to think of it as a metallic tidal wave. I don't know what the material is, but it's highly reflective. Me and Doreen agree that the motif is Art Deco.
