Hypnotic Butterscotch

Let's get hypnotized! Here's a vintage button with a vortex design carved into a definitive tone of butterscotch Bakelite. I love the dizzying effect of the pinwheel shape and the tunnel-like illusion it creates. This large and dramatic button likely goes back to 1930the same year Zelda Fitzgerald was admitted to a sanatorium and diagnosed as a schizophrenic.
