This is an exquisite quality late 19th c. Satsuma pottery button with a surface as rich as brocade. One large magnificent butterfly is attended by a thousand (not literally) tiny butterflies, all paying homage. The detail is very fine and each tiny bug is outlined in gold that imitate silk brocade.
There appears to be no wear at all. The gold rim is brightly burnished. It's in excellent condition. It measures 1 & 1/2".
