Historical Victorian Gilt Metal & Celluloid LOUIS XIV Buttons
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From France, a pair of gilt metal filigree buttons, shank back, featuring a celluloid portrait of (who I believe to be) a young Louis XIV to the front. The portrait is a famous one - I've seen it used on chocolate boxes, picture frames and many other souvenir items. And if I'm wrong, it could be that the image is of a young Mozart.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: Gilt metal.
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: Front measures 9/16" wide/high. Image size is about 3/8".
FINAL COMMENTS: I do have a few of these beauties available so if you want more or just want one, just let me know. Remember, this listing is for TWO buttons!
