A Clockwork Moss

I've always been fascinated by the toothed wheels that comprise the intricate mechanisms inside of a clock. No wonder I'm in love with this gear-shaped button with its twenty cogs and frontal design of jumbled rings encircling dots. Regarding its greenish visual flavor, Bakelite experts call this color mossalthough I've also heard it referred to as split pea soup. This is a chunky button, caked in a dash of patina going back to the 1930's.
