    Great find Dave-never seen anything like that on a tombac either. Mostly star or geometric type designs.
    Hope all is well-long time no talk and hope to see more vids from you and Todd-

    Very interesting etched tombac, the other gilt flat is a nice one as well. Maybe a design hiding under that corrosion

    Animals are rare, we have had running hares, Foxes, & then your get some flower spreads & I've seen some hunting scenes including men with guns. Plus I think some birds types as well.

    Someone put a lot of time and energy into creating that button design. Very, very nice!
