This beautiful vintage pen and ink image of a Kingfisher come from “The Picture Natural History” with about four hundred illustrations by Mary E.C. Boutell, edited with an introduction by her father the Rev Charles Boutell, M.A. Published in 1874.

My copy of the book was quite foxed and falling apart with insect damage throughout. Amazingly most of the illustrations were still in good condition. Scanning and preserving these wonderful illustrations seemed a terrific way to keep them alive.

The pictures are very detailed although it does not seem to come through in the photographs

Any of these Boutell Animal and Critter images can be mixed and matched. If you would like a special group please convo me for price and shipping. I am happy to make any special listing you wish.

This is 1.25" sized and is made up as a BUTTON

As a BUTTON they are perfect for your hat, coat, messenger bag, purse, notebook cover, wherever a small statement or bit of art is needed. Spruce up your cloth recycling bags to make them your own! Use them to decorate packages or tuck into gifts.

It can be made up as a magnet for an extra $ .50

If you choose the MAGNET feature it would be great on a fridge, filing cabinet or locker or any other place, which needs a little brightening.
Please excuse any glare from the camera. The buttons themselves are free from any glare spots.


From the Charming Descriptions of Mary E.C. Boutell:

The Kingfisher: There are few English Birds that have much colour in their plumage; so that the Kingfisher is deservedly admired as it flashes its brilliant metallic feathers through the air whilst seeking its food --- little fishes, such as minnows. Its nest is made by boring holes in the banks of rivers or ponds, and it has from four to seven pearly-white eggs. The Kingfisher's head and beak appear to be our of proportion to the rest of its body, being very large
