Edelweiss flower buttons
The Edelweiss Flower is found in the Alpine countries of Europe, and is highly prized by mountaineers as a sign of victory over the mountains and its dangers. Many a mountaineer has fallen trying to pluck one from the steep rocks. These are silver colored metal with a loop shank, size 11/16 and 7/8..both have a GESCH backmark.
