This is an Antique Superfin Paris Button with Brass and Silver Designs. This exquisitely detailed button has an inset brass dome with an openwork swirled pattern, surrounded by a stamped silver design with a woven double rope (one plain and one dotted) over a lined background and a scalloped outer border with ten large raised dots. The brass backing has a loop shank and is marked "Superfin Paris" with two stars. This marking was used by the Scovill Manufacturing Company in Waterbury CT in the 1860's. The button measures 1" (26mm) in diameter by 0.3125" (8mm) high (not including the shank). This Antique Superfin Paris Button with Brass and Silver Designs is in very good condition with no damage or wear. The base of the brass dome has darkened over time and has been left unpolished.
