This is an unusual mid-19th c. glass wafer button over silver leaf or foil. The pressure of the glass creates Newton rings in imitation of crystallized tin--but reflective like silver. These buttons must have been fantastic on the silk moire of the mid-19th century! I have seen this button in button books, but it is not common. These were fragile buttons and certainly succumbed to wear! It is 1 & 1/8" in very fine condition.
