Thou Shalt Polish Thy Buttons! So complex and biblical, I've named this button "The Israelite" since it looks like a holy relic from the ancient Hebrew nation as described in the Old Testament. Forming the base of this button is a slab of tortoise Bakelite (aka rootbeer). The middle piece that resembles an ice cube is made of Lucite, which is the same plastic as Plexiglas. Finally, this anomalous button is decorated in three strands of brass—verily bestowing this oddity with a Babylonian frill.
