Once upon a time, there was a big, oversized yellow genuine Bakelite button. It was old (circa 1940) and it measured 3 inches across.

It sat in a drawer for decades, waiting for a big oversized buttonhole to come along. Alas, it never appeared.

Finally, the button's owner said 'C'mon...we're not getting any younger. You need to get out and impress people with your big size and corn cob color'. So the button's owner found an old Lucite chain that was partly corn cob yellow with some brown and black too. The big links of the chain paired very well with the big button. You could see that this was a perfect coupling.

The chain measures 19 inches long by 1 inch wide. As you can see, you can hook the chain to wear the necklace as a choker with the button dangling long or like a regular necklace with the button as the center pendant.

The button passes all the Bakelite tests, has a good sheen on the front and a matte finish back. All is well in the big button world.

But there may still be a lonely oversized buttonhole out there somewhere.
