Cupcake Sprinkles

Some Bakelite buttons are infused with metallic glitter and some are permeated with multi-colored flecks of different colors of Bakelite. Rarely do I find Bakelite buttons that contain cupcake sprinkles, but here one is! The color of the Bakelite is apple juice and the inner sprinkles are probably bits of punched-out celluloid. I was going to post this button later this year on my birthday, but somehow today felt like the right time. Probably dating back to the early-1940's, this little merrymaker is one of my most prized discoveries. Whoopee!
