Undercut/Wonder Cut

One of my favorite "undercut" 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 undercut styles are out thereornate grids and geometrical latticework on buttons going back nearly 80 or 90 years.
