Classic Victorian Metal Button - Pierrot (Clown) Playing a Lute
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 French Pierrot (clown) playing his lute. A bit of foliage lies to the right of the gent. The center design is a golden bronze while the outer edge is silvered.
CONDITION: Very nice with just a touch of light wear to the back.
METAL CONTENT: Base metal? Brass?
SIZE: 1-1/4" across
FINAL COMMENTS: Definitely a unique bit of metal for a treasured project!
