This very old button is in very good condition despite some age flaws (see back). The unusual melon shaped steel embellishments look like pearls in some light! There is a carved pearl daisy escutcheon surrounding the bezel-set brilliant paste.
The complex steels are scarce--each cut steel on the border has a steel "petticoat". They are bright but not as brilliant as when men were peacocks and
light was measured in candlepower. It measures 1 & 1/2". The gold foil is very bright and lightly ruffled.
