Slashed Butter!

As pretty as this button is, it appears to have undergone some violence. The etches around the border look like the random slashes of a mad butcher (or a mad barber...Hello! Sweeney Todd). Otherwise, maybe this would be the outcome if you asked Edward Scissorhands to "pass the margarine." Texturally, this neat-o button is a cream-colored model of Bakelite notches and slices. With so much chiseled detail, it goes without saying that no two Bakelite buttons are exactly alike.
