The design of this Antique Button begins in the center with a circle of Marcasites surrounding a larger Marcasite. Another circle of Marcasites between two rows of individual Marcasites completes the concave center of the button. Two raised rows of Marcasites are next that create a raised rim. Lastly, two more rows of Marcasites create the outside edge of the Button.
All of the Marcasites are Present and Sparkly. The metal appears to be Steel, and I cannot find a mark on the back.
This Button would be Gorgeous on a fur coat or formal gown. You may also be able to string a chain through the loop in the back and wear it as a Pendant on a Necklace or Choker.
