Slashed Blossom

This flower buttons looks to have been carved in a sloppy hurry by Edward Scissorhands himself! The Bakelite is a hazy rendition of apple juice that always reminds me of weathered beach glass with its frosted and roughened appearance. As for the slashed mode of the incised detail, every slit looks like a swiftly rendered knife-wound, albeit with attractive results. Gashed, scratched, nicked and pruned, this old button underwent some serious cutting.
