The Buttons are circular in form with typical ring fasteners soldered on the reverse. The face of each button is beautifully engraved with a double prick dot border and a central stylised bright cut flower head. All six buttons are in excellent condition and are well marked on the reverse with the maker's mark and sterling mark. This is the first set of buttons which we have ever seen coming from Scotland and few sets are known to exist.

Diameter 1.1 inches, 2.75 cm.
