This is a large 1 & 1/2" mid-18th century button that was converted to a brooch sometime in the early 19th century. The subject lady in pink with a lute is in very fine condition--nice and dry beneath the glass and original colors still bright. I purchased it with the intent of restoring it to its former self, and may still do so if no one wants her as a brooch! (It's expensive.) It's a lovely piece, backed and rimmed in copper, the rim originally gilded.
