Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


A most unusual design on an antique button makes a very different necklace.

Button shows a squirrel with a shotgun, presumably to shoot a birds nest from the tree.

The design is in high relief brass with dark purple tint.

Silver plated filigree pendant measures 3/4" and hangs on an 18" silver plated chain.


Thank you for your interest in this unique conversation piece & heirloom jewelry!

Wonderful piece of dog-dom from the 19th century. His ears stick out like he just heard a whistle-just like my dog. So naturally I had to have this little treasure. It’s in near mint condition. This is amazing considering it’s over 100 years old. It does have the patina of age on it. This only adds to its appeal.
The vendor got it right to me. And it’s as all that was promised and more. Photos didn’t do it justice.
