This Victorian round sterling silver button dates to c. 1900 and features a repousse design depicting a putti or putto draped in scrolls and holding a burgee or swallowtail flag. It measures 1" in diameter (medium); sterling loop shank; weight = 3 grams. The front carries the maker’s mark “T.H” in a lozenge = Theodor Hartmann; “Lion Passant; e; F; Leopard’s Head” = English silver .925; 1900; import mark; London Assay Office”. The extra “F” inside an oval denotes ‘foreign’—a British hallmark introduced in 1867 under The Custom Act of 1842 ordering imported silver to be sold assayed at a British Office. It is in very good condition.
