Possible help with small decorations please? ID'd button fronts

Post by smudge.g » Mon Nov 13, 2017 3:13 pm

A while back i found a smallish copper decoration with an embossed sailing ship/yacht on it with my Euroace/Nel tornado. Well today, on the same field, i found another identical disc and just wondered if anyone could tell what they came from? I was thinking maybe furniture decoration but dont know.

My first thoughts are buttons or drawer handles but it depends upon the back.
