Wonder Cut

One of my favorite double-cut buttons, this one looks as though it's stretching apart in two places with internal strands barely intact as the Bakelite comes undone like a tortured wafer. I like how the featured surface designs on this butterscotch creation are etched away to show the evenly sliced underside. It always impresses me how many different double-cut styles are out thereornate grids and geometrical latticework on buttons going back nearly 80 or 90 years.
