Hi Billy

I'd say it is a Talbot (extinct breed of hunting dog) statant over a pile of roundels probably representing cannonballs, although I'm unable to find a match online. Hopefully someone more conversant with heraldry will add to or correct me if I'm wrong. Nice livery button anyway.

Back in Victorian times there was a brewery in Ealing, West London, called Stratton's. Maybe they had their company buttons named on the reverse.
