A Beautiful 18th Century French Button
Please refer to our stock # zu121 when inquiring.
A striking dark green enamel on copper button, dating from the 18th century. There is a central stylized flower, with a central faux pearl with branches emanating from it. Each branch has tiny faux pearls set in it. Circling the flower are two concentric rings of gold stars. To finish off the exquisite and detailed workmanship of this tour de force is a border of faux pearls.
While examples similar to this form can be found, albeit with difficulty, most are blue, and the use of the green color is quite rare.
Excellent condition with no issues. Please note that any apparent flakes or spots in the main photo are just due to dust. The diameter of the button is 1 1/4".
