#171 ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Silver Button - Carved, Ox Bone, Floral, Shank Back
ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Silver Button - Carved, Ox Bone, Floral, Shank Back

May I offer….

AGE: C.1890 or so

ITEM: Found in a sewing basket that came from an estate here in the St. Louis area, may I offer this unique button. Entirely hand carved (but from what I do not know, but it does seem like natural material, possibly ox bone or the other stuff), the setting is silver and the back is a shank. There is also a handwritten label but I can glean no info from it other than the button is old!

CONDITION: A light cleaning and polish are clearly needed, as to the panel, a see a small flea bit at the edge which could be sanded down and smoothed flat.

METAL CONTENT: Silver though the exact content is indeterminate. If European, which I suspect, the metal could be anything from 800 to 950 Silver.

HALLMARKS: None to the setting - just the paper label.

SIZE: Large at 1-1/4" across/high.

WEIGHT: 4.8 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: Look for the other item I found along with this one, only it was made into a pin!
