This exquisite 18th c. gentleman's cravat pin is made of a contemporaneous button in (tested) sterling silver. This is the size of a waistcoat button, slightly larger at 3/4", and illustrates the quality of 18th c. buttons. The men were the peacocks. The cobalt enamel is enhanced with gold foil paillons--very likely real gold microns thin--and brilliant pastes in cut-down settings. Each stone has a teeny bit of pitch on the culette, so sometimes referred to as "black dot" paste. The pitch just faciliated the cutting. It measures 3" by 3/4" and appears to be in its original velvet and satin lined box.
