I'm really not so button hungry that I manufacture them :) but I do love ALL old enamels, and after I acquired a fantastic pair of rare Romantic Georgian Bilston enamel curtain tie-backs, I couldn't resist giving them new life. The back of this one is smooth but rusted. It can be fine sanded down to bright iron, and coated with clear nail polish, but it really isn't suitable as a brooch without plating. It makes a lovely old button! I don't recommend this item for competition because it is a conversion. But I DO recommend it to button collectors who cherish enamels and do NOT compete. It measures 1 & 7/8" and in whatever form you enjoy it, the enamel is quite rare and in excellent condition.
