Mermaid's Pet

One bubbly oddball, coming up! This bulbous and slippery jewel is the kind of Bakelite button I really go for. The color is classic apple juicesopping up scads of light. The shape is an exotic globule, carved like a flowery snowflake at the bottom and topped with a blister-like head. I reckon there's a baby jellyfish housed in this button. It's a mermaid's pet, or more specifically...a frisky sea poodle.
