This set of four amazing buttons are signed F. Rasumny for Felix Rasumny (1869-1940), a well known medal artist and jewelry designer who emigrated from Russia to France, where he worked in all manner of metals. They are truly lovely with strong Art Nouveau lines. Each is large, 1 1/4 inches wide and 1 inch high, and showcases a woman in profile with lilies in her hair. I actually purchased these buttons with the idea of making them into pendants, but I find I haven't the heart to split them up! They are so lovely and would make such a great statement on a coat or cloak.
They are in excellent condition, fully hallmarked with the makers mark for Reynolds & Westwood, a firm with a shop on Vyse Street in Birmingham between 1898 and 1908. I don't know weather the hallmarks indicated that these were imported into the UK or weather the artist created the design and they were produced by Reynolds & Westwood, I suspect the former. Together they weigh 41.2 grams. These special buttons are a wonderful find!
I offer layaway on all items purchased for full retail price. In general my layaway terms are 1/3 down and 1/3 in 30 days and the last 1/3 in 60 days. I am flexible so if you are interested please ask me and we can work out a payment plan that suits you. Items ship when payment is complete and items purchased on layaway are eligible for exchange only.
I always want you to be happy with anything you purchase on my lane. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason simply let me know and we'll work together to get the item returned for a refund. I guarantee that my pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible. My goal is to exceed your best expectations!
