Description

#1, 3, 5, 6, & 7 have sold.

This listing is for your choice of ONE (1) 19th Century carved pearl button. There are EIGHT (8) different designs available. When ordering just let me know in the Add a Note window which number(s) you want.

I would like to say that the enlarged photos somewhat distort the way the designs on these is seen. Because the close-ups show things not easily seen with the naked eye, they show every stroke in the process of carving the pearl. When seen with the eye, the design shrinks downs and shows the design better. The "group" picture shows how these present better than the close-ups. It's kind of like what happens when you make larger and larger prints of a picture.

Here is a brief description of each button:

1. SOLD...SOLD...SOLD NBS small, measuring 23/32" diameter. The beautiful woman is rosy brown pearl on a luminous white pearl background and is prong set. The border has 8 rivet set cut steels. The metal is silver toned over brass. There is a loop shank on the back.

2. NBS small, measuring 5/8" diameter. Depicts a woman in full gown walking toward a building. The design is rosy brown pearl cut through to a luminous white base. It is bordered by 16 rivet set cut steels. The frame is non-magnetic silver toned metal. There is a loop shank on the back.

3. SOLD...SOLD...SOLD NBS small, measuring 11/16" diameter. A beautiful woman carved into a luminous rosy brown pearl. The pearl is bordered by 22 rivet set cut steels. The metal frame is brass. There is a loop shank on the back.

4. NBS medium, measuring 13/16". The craved scenic pearl shows a woman in full gown walking beneath a bridge. The prong set design is rosy brown pearl carved to reveal the luminous white pearl background. The pearl center is bordered by 21 rivet set cut steels. The metal from is brass. There is a loop shank on the back.

5. SOLD...SOLD...SOLD NBS medium, measuring 1/2" by 5/8". There is a beautifully detailed, hand carved Trojan soldier in rosy brown pearl. This pearl has beautiful fire. The pearl is set in a silver metal frame which I believe to be sterling, but the button is not marked. There is a plate with loop shank on the back.

6. SOLD...SOLD...SOLD NBS small, measuring 11/16" diameter. Female portrait, hand carved in rosy brown pearl. The pearl is prong-set in a brass frame and surrounded by 10 rivet set cut steels, alternating with a pierced rectangular space. There is a loop shank on the back.

7. SOLD...SOLD...SOLD NBS medium, measuring 5/8" by 5/8" set on point. The lovely hand carved Trojan soldier is rosy brown pearl carved through to reveal the luminous white pearl background. The pearl is set in a silver frame which I believe is sterling silver, but it is not marked. On the back is a bar with loop shank.

8. NBS small, measuring 5/8" diameter. The carved pearl square is set on point and shows a robed figure standing next to a columned structure. The design is done in rosy brown pearl, carved through to the white pearl background. The square pearl design is bordered by a ring of 17 rivet set cut steels. The metal frame is brass and there is a loop shank on the back.

All of these are in very good, original antique condition. I have included a close-up picture of each button and they are a big part of my description. As I said earlier, the close-ups do "blurr" the way the designs actually look to the naked eye. Please view them all to have a good understanding of what you are considering. I see no flaws to mention.

Any of these would be a nice addition to any button collection. They also could be used to make a pretty piece of jewelry.

Combined shipping is available. I can ship 10-12 buttons for the same fee as for mailing one. I am happy to hold buttons as you order them. Just tell me with your first order that you wish to use this service. As additional orders are placed, I promptly refund the additional postage. When you are ready to receive you buttons, just say so and they will be safely packaged and on their way. I have several button customers who use and appreciate this service.
