Here's amoss button boasting a many-petaled crown escutcheon in striking brass detail. A mottled tone of dark green, moss Bakelite is sometimes referred to by collectors as spit pea soup. In this case, the Bakelite has been sculpted into an awkward design that goes from zigzagged to spotted. Oddly asymmetrical, this button flaunts errant grooves. It's a rogue weirdo, this one. Circa 1930.
