Beached Bakelite

Greetings, beachcombers! I said it was coming and here it is: Starting today, I'm posting a full week of Bakelite buttons that pertain to the ocean as a theme. Washed ashore for your inspection, here are two scallops made of creamed corn and dark chocolate Bakelite with a bright green flounder between them. The fish retains its painted-on stripes that may or may not go back to its origins in the 1920's. Stay poised for more oceanic Bakelite in the days ahead...
