With GORGEOUS DETAIL, whether a collector of antique SEWING EPHEMERA, or wanting that special accent on the clothes of your ANTIQUE DOLL, you will love this UNIQUE GEM; it can definitely stand on it's own in ANY collection!
The button is made of ORMOLU BRASS and measures a large 1 1/4" in diameter, with the center portrait measuring 11/16" across! It is one of the most FANCIEST antique buttons we have offered, with ELABORATE workmanship including a FLEUR-DE-LIS border trim measuring 1/4" against a CREAM ENAMEL background, and a round CENTER PORTRAIT of a beautiful young woman! The portrait appears to be a LITHOGRAPH PRINT, but it has beautiful pastel colors and wonderful detail to give the look of being HAND PAINTED!
Most likely of FRENCH ORIGIN, circa late 1800's, we can envision this lovely piece not only being the FOCAL POINT of an antique button collection, but also as a beautiful decorative ornament on the clothes of your ANTIQUE DOLL; our 13" Fashion doll is doing the modeling honors!
