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.

Yep ... look like squashed buttons to me ... but very nice buttons!
