Antique Inlaid Abalone Estate Button

This gorgeous very special antique button is inlaid with colorful abalone shell in a flower and leaf design. I'm unsure of what the black material is - I think it is most likely an early plastic or gutta percha - it isn't enamel because it isn't cold to the touch. The button is small measures about 11/16" across. Good antique condition with age appropriate wear including some surface wear and scratching to the black material, and on the back, there are a couple of fine cracks in the black material. There is bending to the shank loop as shown. You will treasure this!!!
