A lovely antique collar button from the Victorian period.
I bought this piece many years ago thinking it would make a fabulous pin or pendant.
The hand painted porcelain has soft shades of orange and green with a vivid gold leaf border.
The painting is beautifully executed with precision, the soft shading and layered colors are captivating.
The delicate flowers are poppies, it has the characteristic black centers, curling buds hang gracefully and foliage peaks thorough the blossoms.
The finely detailed flowers are on a background of creamy white with a hint of yellow, the floral is framed with a gold leaf border.
The back has a raised 'button' on the back to insert into the button or lapel hole.
Measures 1&3/16" in diameter and sits 3/8" high.
Condition is excellent, no damage or visible wear, white spots are glare from the flash.
Pretty and feminine, classic Victorian hand painted porcelain cuff buttons with an exceptional poppy motif.
