Item details

An unusual single Victorian collector's button, late 1800s in date. In dulled, darkened goldtone metal forming a sinuous, art nouveau open frame, inlaid with marbled brown faux tortoiseshell (celluloid). The button is approx. 26mm wide, slightly domed with a flat, blackened back and loop shank. In excellent vintage condition, just the darkened patina to the metal and some very slight surface scratching to the celluloid- nothing significant. Please see all photos.
