Starred Bakelite

Sweet land of liberty! Due to some unsightly shadow effects in the midday sunlight, I couldn't get a satisfactory picture of this three-colored star button. So I brought it inside and snapped this shot of it in a Teflon frying pan. How's that for celebrating America? These triple-toned buttons are a famously hard-to-find treasure for Bakelite collectors. So when this galactic baby landed in my wishful hands, I was more than just psyched. I was star-smacked!

Happy 4th of July!
