Triangular Chocolate

This button recently cropped up at an antique store in Kansas City, Missouri. Seduced by its cocoa brown complexion, I took it home with me in a gung-ho jiffy. What's not to love? It's got a handsome diversity of carved designs with my favorite part being the triangular portion that's vigorously etched to form an eye-catching framework of rough clusters. From the 1930's, this chocolatey wonder has tested positive for Bakelite.
