One Side Gilt? Check. Eye Inset in Bird? Check. Part of 2-Piece Button?

(1/1)

Pete B:
Hello Everyone, hope you're enjoying the evening... this item is abt 22mm wide, is gilt on the bird-side, and the bird has an inset eye of something not metal. I handled years ago  an old button collection, and this looks very much like the top part of a two-piece constructed button. Would the only bird worth "honoring" in such fashion be the Roman Eagle? The reverse is pretty clean... and that's an extra eye on the reverse. Any ideas? Thank you.
