This is an unique advertising tool used in the button industry. It is 5" long and reads on the top side "Forn Buttons Jacksons Patent". The reverse reads "For AB&C Button Plates" It has the 1 1/2" attachment. The handle fits into the button piece with four pegs that turn the bottom rings to attach button snaps. This is definitely late 1800's and was purchased in England and was part of my collection and rare.
