Default Possible Flaming Bomb Insignia on Button.

Hi All,

Apologies, I get the feeling this button isn't British although it doesn't quite look like the French ones, that's if I even have the insignia correct. I can tell it's old, it's heavily domed and unfortunately, I cannot make out the makers mark. It measures 20mm in diameter.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I found it metal detecting a site with a range of British military buttons dating back to the early 1800s.

Thanks in advance.

-Terry.

It is Dutch, Corps of Grenadeers, around the last quarter of the 19th century.
