This is a typical large 1 & 3/8" engraved pearl button from the mid-18th century, embellished with a paste jewel pin-shanked through the body. I bought this button with a significant edge chip because I thought I could restore it, and the restored button is offered. It will enhance any card of pearls notwithstanding its scarlet letter (D for defect/damaged). It is engraved with a 5-point star, so it would equally enhance a card of star designs. The shank is flat copper wire--all original. The actual setting is coin or 0.800 silver, used to enhance the jewel.
