A source recommended by local re-enactors is Jas. Townsend & Son. http://www.jastown.com/newhome.htm
Their catalog is on-line and includes pewter buttons in 2 sizes.
I believe that a thistle design is available (I used such a button
on the shirt my husband wears with his kilt when we dance in 1750's
costume) although it does not say. To quote their home page:
