This is a super scarce, hard-to-find large deluxe button from the mid-19th century, when aluminum was a highly prized metal in jewelry and other small conceits. The metal sparkles brighter, or whiter, than silver and is beautifully carved into a foliate wreath on the lacquered surface. The lacquer imitates tortoiseshell beautifully! In the center is a silver-gray pearl cabochon. The button measures 1 & 7/16", is marked "Depose Paris", and is in very fine condition.
