A cast copper alloy 'dandy' button of post-medieval date. The button is circular in plan and is decorated on the upper face with a leaf and petal outer border and lozenges around a plain central, circular field. No gilding survives. The reverse is plain and undecorated and no trace of the fitting loop survives. Dandy buttons were so-called because they were large and flamboyant compared to others of the period; a Dandy was a fashion-conscious, often well-to-do man. A similar example can be sen in Bailey (2004:60) no. 163. 18th century date.
