      Very collectible, late 19th century(1865-1902) Paris Back Button called "Circus Cat". Two piece brass Button with a self shank, you can see the two brass pins holding the design together in the back. T. W. & W. means Trelon, Weldon & Weil(business partners who made Buttons in Paris) who were later joined by H(Hartog) & M(Marchand). Paris Brevettes Cie means "Paris Patent Company". Nice Button Rickster!

      Kudos to Buttonista for great information. These seem to be quite rare and so amazing to think about.
