    This is an elaborate Antique Brass Button with Daisy.  Stamped into several layers of brass is a flower with seven petals in various sizes, each one with a pointed oval shape and a center line of raised dots.  Echoing out from the etched and curved leaf-like border are seven curling fronds, including one that arches around the back of the daisy.  The center holds a faceted clear rhinestone with a dotted border.  The background has been painted black, as has the metal backing with metal loop shank.  The button measures 1.125" (29mm) in diameter.  Manufacturer and exact age are unknown.  This Antique Brass Button with Daisy is very good condition.  There is a small touch of greening inside two of the fronds, which could be polished out, and surface wear to the paint on back.
