Complexities in Black


Undercut buttons come in untold sizes, shapes and colors. Here's a black, ovular one that's been in my collection for a long time. Formed with tiny intersections that create a grid-like system of patchy crossroads, it's like this button is sporting a tidy network of avenues. This neat period piece tested positive for Bakelite and was probably made in the 1930'sor possibly as late as the early 1940's.
