This is a very scarce late 18th century button from the time of the French Revolution. The painting is in about the best condition I have seen on a button this old! There are no precipitates or flakes under the glass. In the images, the background sometimes looks dark or mottled--it is not. It's pure white mica on which the design casts shadows. The flags say Fraternite and Egalite. The button measures 1 & 3/8" in very fine condition. The back looks like tin.
