Creamed Corn Clovers
Celebrating all things Irish (including my own personal heritage), here we have a couple of clover buttons in creamed corn Bakelite. Going back to the 1920's, these bad boys have been roughed up over the years and now bear all the nicks and scuffs commensurate with age. Perhaps the original wearer of these old shamrocks was involved in some pretty savage fisticuffs? On that note, here's a limerick that I wrote especially for the fighting Irish:
There once was a fight between twins
Whose bodies were joined at the chins.
When one shot his foe down, he felt himself go down
And likewise in war, no one wins!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day,
