Abstract: A subset $ S$ of the plane is a two cell provided $ S$ is homeomorphic to $ \{ x\vert\;\vert\vert x\vert\vert \leqq 1\} $.

Theorem. Let $ S$ be a two cell with exactly $ n$ points of local nonconvexity. Then $ S$ is expressible as a union of $ n + 1$ compact convex sets with mutually disjoint interiors.
