Shaped like a spaceship, this large and multi-textured button tested positive for Bakelite. The color is moss, a rather murky green with veinlike flourishes in black. The rim of the button is carved in an almost quilted pattern. This button entered my collection last summer through a purchase I made via my friend and fellow-button collector, Doreen. It's kind of exciting to find vintage buttons shaped like unidentified flying objects—where Bakelite goes sci-fi.
