It's time I post a very special button in the rarest of all the Bakelite colors. Here it is: a true blue collector's item in the transparent class of vintage plastic known as "Prystal" Bakelite. This one is noteworthy because it's the only carved button in my small cache of Bakelite blues. On a side note, it took me twenty minutes just to get this button to stay balanced on its rim for today's photo session. Alas, the button stands! In honor of this rarity, here's a snippet of Madonna lyrics from one of her majesty's most under-celebrated chart toppers:
You're the one I'm dreaming of.
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be true blue
Baby, I love you...
