Raspberry Ghoul

Smiling straight at you, here's a dark wine-colored or raspberry button in tested and confirmed Bakelite. Highly carved sections form a curly hairdo, thick lips and a goggle-eyed stare, resulting in the grinning face of a harmless ghoul. Or is it harmless? I get a Haitian voodoo vibe from this button's mysterious countenance. To be honest, this button gives me the heebie-jeebies. c. 1932.
