Here's a great carved shell button with a floral design and flowing Art Nouveau lines. Made around the turn of the century. The image is etched into the shell - in this case abalone shell, and was some little gilded sections as well. The button has a curved front side and a flat back with the back ring made of brass.

The piece is 1 1/16" in diameter. The condition is excellent. The light catches the iridescent qualities of the shell and makes it look very magical.

Good size, good subject, good craftsmanship, good age, good find!
