Mississippi Mud Pie

Is anybody out there hungry for pie? Here's a Bakelite button in that chocolatey color we Bakelite fanatics call Mississippi Mud. Cut for a serving of six, it's no light snack. Additional details consist of shallow etches giving this rugged goodie a chiseled texture of lip-smacking embellishments. It's a classic example of how Bakelite emulates a tasty indulgence, but don't be fooled. As fattening as it looks, this is definitely a coat button from the 1930's.
