Lovely Victorian Metal Button - Geisha Among Chrysanthemums
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
About 20 years ago, Art came into 3 shadowboxes full of Victorian buttons. Well, he couldn't sell the buttons as a set so he had me take them from the boxes to list individually which I am now doing. I'm not a button expert but I do know a good one (or two) when I see them. So up for offer now:
AGE: I am guessing but anywhere from the late 1800s to early 1900s.
ITEM: A metal button, shank back, with a front design of a Japanese Geisha (my opinion) peeking over a vase of leaves and in the background, chrysanthemums. Shank back.
CONDITION: Very nice with a touch of green to the back of the button - I think the piece just needs a cleaning.
METAL CONTENT: Base metal? Brass?
SIZE: 7/8" across
FINAL COMMENTS: Definitely a unique bit of metal for a treasured project!
NOTE: If you are purchasing more than 1 item from my shop, please wait for me to amend the invoice. I can put a lot of small goodies in one envelope for transport!
