This outstanding late 19th c. button is huge--1 & 7/8" by 1 & 1/2"--for a figural dog head. The pearl is exquisite with rich iridescence. The shank is swaged brass and this pup is guaranteed house-broken. It look like a pit bull variation, so extremely intelligent, loyal, and--honest--good with children. In competition it is sure to be a counter. Just beautifully carved!
