Enter, the Pharaoh! Massive and majestic, this apple juice button is a major celebrity in my trove of handpicked Bakelite. Purchased by my friend, Doreen, at a button show several years ago, it then entered my collection and has kept my jaw permanently dropped ever since. Oblong and angular, the glass-like Bakelite is wrapped in gold-tone bands and etched with a cloud-shaped motif. There's nothing "Egyptian" about this button, but considering the royal superiority of this paragon's kingly aura, I call it the pharaoh...and you should too.
