EXCELLENT. This antique Silver openwork Black Dot Paste button is in excellent condition. Each Paste gemstone is secure within its sterling Silver settings, and is without damage, other than a minor scuff on the central Paste which can't be seen unless you look very closely! the 9ct Gold back has also retained its lustre, so she's an all rounder.
