Bakelite Bits: Green
All this week I'll be posting Bakelite "bits" or smaller sized buttons that've slipped down to the bottom of my collection—easy to forget about, but fun to dredge up and examine. Surprisingly, some of the tiniest buttons have enormous charisma. Today's medley in green is curious indeed with honorable mentions going to the cube-shaped button in the lower left corner (a two-tone button with a quarter of the cube being a lighter shade of green) and also the mossy-hued monster in the center, which is 14-sided (maybe the most angular button I own). Stay tuned for more bits tomorrow...
