Honey Mustard Sauce

Here's a seldom-seen Bakelite anomaly. The strange color of this old button defies categorization. It's probably an apple juice button that somehow came out in a thick and foggy shade of opaque mustard. For that reason, I call it "honey mustard sauce" Bakelite and I've never seen anything else like it. Shape-wise, this large button has the look of a whopping blister. Circa 1920.
