Stamped brass over pressed celluloid depiction of sky, crescent moon, fence and plant life.
The celluloid behind the horse and rider is molded to depict the fence, crescent moon, stars and vegetation. Do you know why this button would not qualify as a background button? If you realize that the celluloid is part of the pictorial composition, then you recognize that this example is not a background. Background materials are always plain and unassuming, not part of the pictorial aspect. This button is a deluxe Ivoroid (celluloid) button with brass OME (other material embellishment).
