A lovely pair of antique cuff buttons from the Victorian period.
The hand painted porcelain has soft shades of purple and green with a vivid gold leaf border.
The delicate flowers are violets, subtle foliage peaks thorough the blossoms.
The finely detailed flowers are on a background of peach that fades out to soft white.
The floral is framed by a graceful curling gold leaf border with a raised line and dot pattern around the thin edge of gold.
Being hand painted, the images are very similar using all the same elements but clearly not exactly the same which really increases their charm.
The backs have raised 'buttons' on the back to insert into the button holes.
Each measures 1&1/16".
Condition is excellent, no damage and minimal wear. White spots are glare from the flash.
Pretty and feminine, classic Victorian hand painted porcelain cuff buttons.
