Three Piece Construction, Size NBS Large,
Bright Cut Pewter with Steel Liner,
Tinted Brass Rim, and Japanned Back
I bought this button a while back, a 120 year old plus button, 1.5" wide, in excellent condition. This was the photo from the listing. As pictured, it actually has the reddish tint on the domed tower roof, the three dimensional relief effect, the pebbly sky and the textured bricks. The button is shiny bright where the pewter has been cut for the roof, the pole, the parapet, the windows, and the pond beneath the tree. Notice the waving flag and the three flying birds.
