Buttery Sqaure Button

It's an extra bright day outside and here's an example of sunshine meets Bakelite in the form of this square-cut button with carved slats. This is that soft shade of creamed corn Bakelite that I always compare to butter. Wouldn't this button look right at home on a piece of toast? It looks like someone literally took a stick of margarine, shaved the end off and sculpted this fetching rarity. circa 1930.
