Toffee Splotch

Although this piece of Bakelite looks like a chocolate button, the photograph is slightly misleading. In real life, the suspicious color is closer to a tannish toffee and less of a legit chocolate. Carved to such an extensive depth, the square-like shape of this button is devoid of any true corners. As a result, the shape is more of a splatter or a splotch than a square. A rare toffee splotch! circa 1928.
