OJ Guitar Pick

Of all the Bakelite colors, I think orange juice Bakelite is the most mesmerizing. I get transfixed on the swirls that sit frozen inside of the plastic like snapshots of a strange substance running through liquid. Case in point: Here's a button in the shape of a guitar pick (made of Bakelite) that's flooded with complexities of orange juice squiggles. Design-wise, this button's got a rippled effect that I've angled in the sun for highlighting. From the 1930's.
