This is an antique mourning clothing ornament, button cover or hat ornament made of various shapes and sizes of black glass beads including small faceted rounds, large faceted rounds and grape clusters. The ornament was made in England 1890-1910.The ornament or button cover measures .5 inches high by 2 inches in diameter and consists of a woven backing that is gathered and domed with the beads being hand sewn on. The ornament is in very good condition with a few threads loose and no missing beads that I can see. I acquired a small lot of antique victorian trims on my last trip to England.
