Oddity in Chocolate

Along came this weirdo one day and my Bakelite button collection got so much more interesting! Going around the surface of this turtle-like creation are 8 nubby blisters alternating between brass enhancements and carved bumps in the chocolate Bakelite. Some light etchings top off the middle area and that makes this one of my daffiest buttons alive. A true freak of vintage plastic, circa 1930.
