An amazing and authentic old arts and crafts button. This is a classic triangular design with an inlaid oval cabochon in the centre. I can't decide what the centre stone is - it seems to be a very deep red / brown colour and is either glass or a stone of some sort which is surrounded with a gilt border. This has a faceted rim. I can't decide whether there is a very thin slice chip on the rim or whether this just a flaw is from manufacture. This is invisible from above.
The button has an old four way metal shank.
This has a blue wash to the back which has faded over the years. The photos highlight the wear but in fact the button looks much nicer in real life.
I will happily combine postage with all additional items being post free - just one postage charge paid.
All my items are vintage and inevitably have signs of age related wear which I try to describe honestly and openly. I am based in London, England and have been selling vintage jewellery and collectables online for over 15 years. I have a passion for vintage items - especially buttons and rare glass beads - and constantly seek out the unusual and interesting.
Please remember to check measurements as items can look larger in a photo than in real life.
