Yes very nice. Looks like its a machine press mass produced Victorian style , As I can`t see it being hand made with all that decorative stuff goings on ,on it .??? Worth a keeper anyway .

I suppose it must be (Victorian) but the sign under the glass is so intricate....

:lol: You had me double checking then. :D Under all that verdigris on the back you`ll probably find the maker if you take the gunge off with a bamboo type tooth pick.

With that sort of design it also gets the heart racing when it appears out of the mud...
Still a nice find and no doubt you will think of a cunning use for it in your office :thumbsup:

I can recall many years ago, (has to be a good 30 ) I was searching on a estate when I found a Gold hall marked cufflink (I thought that was a button at first)with a running fox on it in a sort of mini painting picture under a type of Glass.. I was really over the moon with it. Couldn`t wait to get it home and clean it up. Got home looked in all my pockets. I`d only gone and lost it ! :pulling hair out: I still remember that cufflink as if it was yesterday I found it . I can still see the Fox in full stretch running . It was lovely. And this Meat head went and lost it AGAIN ,after it had probably been there for a good few years waiting to be found. To say I was gutted was an under statement.. I went back many times but it stayed elusive to this day.
Ah well, I had my opportunity and Blew it. :cry:

Looking at my button book for a reference I would put it as Georgian/Late Georgian to early Victorian, I think it may be a "Dandy" button its a great looking button :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
