Egg Yolk on a Stop Sign

Today I'm posting a 2-tone button that appears as a butterscotch dollop on a bright, cherry red octagon. An "egg yolk on a stop sign," both colors have tested positive for Bakelite and convey a cheerful vibrancy that only Bakelite delivers. I always say that Bakelite exudes an inexplicable joy and here's a winsome case in point. Circa 1929.
