The primitive art is what caught my eye with this piece. Appears to be hand made aside from the fastener which the piece was glued to. I removed it to look for identifiable marks, but have found none. The piece is made of two soft metals. The outter piece is gold colored which I believe is plated. The center piece appears natural colored and will mark on white paper as I have read is how to test pewter. Any information as to the orgin, age of the button cover, or what type of person would have used it and how would be most apperciated.
