***THIS IS ANOTHER WONDERFUL ANTIQUE BUTTON OUT OF A FABULOUS
BATON ROUGE/NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA ESTATE
THAT I ACQUIRED SEVERAL YEARS AGO-
ALL OF THE BUTTONS IN THIS COLLECTION WERE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION,
AND SPANNED A TIME PERIOD FROM
BEFORE THE ORIGINAL COLLECTOR WAS BORN IN 1850,
(SOME ARE AS OLD AS THE LATE 18th CENTURY)
THROUGH THE 1930'S***
THIS IS A STRIKING ANTIQUE FRENCH GILT BRASS BUTTON WITH A LOVELY COBALT BLUE, PEACH, TURQUOISE AND WHITE CHAMPLEVE GLASS ENAMELED TOP FEATURING A WEE BLUE, YELLOW AND GREEN HAND PAINTED FORGET-ME-NOT POSY ON THE WHITE SECTION-IT IS ROUNDED ON TOP, MEASURES 9/16" IN DIAMETER AND IT HAS A BRASS LOOP SHANK IN BACK-IT IS IN GOOD USED CONDITION; HOWEVER WHILE IT WAS BEING MADE, THE MOLTEN BLUE GLASS ENAMEL SPILLED OUT OVER ONE AREA OF THE RIM ON ONE SIDE, AND DIDN'T QUITE MAKE ALL THE WAY TO THE RIM OR TO A LITTLE SPOT BESIDE THE RIM ON THE OTHER SIDE ...I JUST WANTED TO BE SURE I INCLUDED THAT INFO, THE BUTTON IS IN GREAT SHAPE WITH A NICE MATTE FINISH AND WOULD BE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION EXCEPT FOR THE ABOVE MENTIONED --- ***ALL OF MY BUTTONS ARE IN EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION WITH WEAR CONSISTENT WITH THEIR AGE , UNLESS I STATE OTHERWISE***
