A wonderful old button, Victorian I think, with a nice swirled design with lovely bristol blue enamel and set with very old paste stones. Likely to be a French button? This has a grey metal back with a round metal shank.
The button measures just under 1 inch (2.5 cm) across. It is in remarkably good condition with some small signs of age related wear, mainly to the paste stones which are quite dull. Quite delightful!
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.
