Little Green

There's something slightly hypnotic about this Bakelite button. Stare at it for a minute and see if you doze off. The base is apple juice, clear and dreamy, while the central bead also tested positive for Bakelite. As beads go, it's a very pretty one that's the same shade of green I attribute to parakeets. I've had this button for a long time and I don't recall where I picked it up. I'm guessing it was made in the 1930's.
