Stamped brass of two lovely cherubs with a lyre, attached to a flat steel disk
This button, while beautiful, does not qualify as a metal (steel) background because the steel forms the base of the button. To be a background, the background material and applied design must be set in a separate metal mounting. It is classified as a flat steel with applied brass design.
The above is based on the National Button Society's Classification System.
