    My grandmother gave this to me in the late 1960's but I have no idea how long she had it prior. I know nothing about it and would appreciate any info someone might have. The back is black metal. Looks like it would have been to a coat of some type but again a guess. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

      This is a Victorian picture Button and the center depicts Minerva(Athena). The center is molded caramel glass that is painted to look like wood, set in brass and it has a repeating heart border. Very nice!
