Toggle Tuesday: Red & Red

Today's episode of "Toggle Tuesday" spotlights a button in two unmistakable tones of red. The divided, oblong portion of the toggle isn't quite maroon. Referring to the international color index, I'm calling it a shade of carnelian or Venetian red. The other portion of the button is a carved midsection that teeters somewhere between ruby red and dark pink! This button measures about two inches across. In my experience as a collector of Bakelite, I find very less variety in bright red tones, which makes this button especially unique.
