Button--Extra Large 19th C. Painting Under Glass Actress in Bicorne Hat in Rococo Brass
This is a very large circa 1880 button of stamped rococo brass with a painting under glass of a woman, probably an actress, in mourning hues of dress and a bicorne hat--clearly of Napoleonic iconography but I don't know the significance. She is not displaying patriotism so much as mourning. Sometimes these 'Vivandiere" figures were decked out in the tri-coleur. It measures 1 & 3/4 inches and is in excellent condition.
