The only thing better than a Bakelite button is a BIG Bakelite button. This is a great big chunky one. It's made of translucent applejuice color Bakelite (tested) and riding piggy back on it, is a reverse-carved piece of clear Lucite.
This was used as some kind of decorative piece...maybe on clothing, a purse, or on jewelry. The back has two imbedded loops for attaching, just like the button kind.
This 1940s piece measures 3 5/8 inches across by 1 1/4 inches wide by 3/4 inch thick (with loops). There's some normal age-related wear to the surface but nothing that distracts from this unique Bakelite piece.
