    Whatever it is looks to be mid-thirties.

    Did just the cover come off the button or did the entire button come out of the wheel? This looks similar to a mid-thirties Chrysler product part(probably an aftermarket part) ,if so the cover presses on over the bakelight button and is secured by 4 small tabs. The tabs may be missing and the cover just popped off. If the whole button came out,the lock ring tabs that secure the contact plate in the button are probably broken allowing the button retainer plate to pull out. Perhaps more photos would help!

    Well, the patent was assigned to the Ross Gear and Tool Company in May of 1936.

    I was thinking Chrysler product, too, but only DeSoto comes to mind and is different as far as I know.
