The Dewdrop

Here's a button that I've had in my collection for a long, long time. I call this button "the dewdrop" because of the five droplet-shaped formations that seem to be curled up together on the surface of this old biddy-of-a-button. Curious thing about this specimen of Bakelite, the color is apple juice and yet it's not transparent. Instead, it's got the smeary look of a half-sucked throat lozenge. On that note, maybe I should call this button, "the cough drop."
