Wine Marigold

Exactly one year ago I posted a Bakelite button just like this one in black. This one is maroonish burgundy. Since I happen to have a couple more buttons like this (in other colors) maybe I'll start a tradition and make March 9th the day I spotlight these five-petaled flower buttons with their carved arrangement of nubby inner bits. Blooming with patina, these Bakelite blossoms will henceforth be referred to as annual specimens in my "marigold series." To be continued one year from today....
