Joya del Sol

This orange juice button looks like a candy-sized clump of sunshine, tastefully sculpted and shining with its carved notches and crisscross pattern. Since it reminds me of a topaz gemstone, I've named this button my Joya del Sol, which is Spanish for "jewel of the sun." 100% Bakelite, this pulp-swirled fireball equals a zesty gobstopper. circa 1930.
