Hello Thes, welcome to the Forum. Your account is active and open for posts. Hopefully, someone will be able to identify the button.

The button is a 'sporting button'. These buttons have hunting scenes, animals, landscapes. "Sporting buttons" now go under 'blazer buttons' and rifle hunt jacket buttons and continue to be made. The quality has deteriorated considerably.
A 19th century coat would have different designs from the same series.
Hammond Turner & Sons was one of the original and best quality makers of such buttons.
