Pineapple Custard Wedge

This button instigated quite a production while I tried to angle it just right for today's photo shoot. A sharp-corned wedge in custard Bakelite, I've always considered this faceted relic to be one of my most amazingly cut buttons. The outer portion reminds me of a lumpy-skinned pineapple while the inner, top section is etched with fanned-out details. Ruggedly artistic compared to the boring buttons of today's mass-produced category, this old-timer emanates pure antiquated spunk!
