Once upon a time, my friend Doreen emailed me with the news of finding this unusually formed button. "It'll go wonderfully in your collection," she told me. And sure enough, here it rests like a misshapen salamander. The earthy color is moss and the shape is almost like that of a stubby spool (or a yo-yo—minus its string). My favorite thing about this button is the etched away splotches that give this Bakelite oldster the look of a spotted swamp creature.
