Red and Maroon Swirl

Here's an extra shiny button that I keep in my pocket sometimes for the sole purpose of toting a lucky charm. It's in mint condition and is smooth as a duck's butt. A yin-yang button from the olden days, this one's made of two tones of red Bakelite: a darkish maroon next to an almost pink shade of gleaming cherry. Though it might've been a run-of-the-mill gimcrack in the 1930's, today this old beauty is a collector's dream.
