Description

This lot of 8 antique buttons is from the late 1800s to early 1900s and all feature romantic figures. Based upon the reference book, "The Big Book of Buttons", these buttons are:

- 1 variation of the button titled, "Chatting by the Fence", she with parasol and dress of the 1880s, he leaning over the fence with hat in hand

- 1 variation of the listed button French Fop, with a man strutting with a lady surrounded by trees

- 1 variation of the button titled, "Lucy and Edgar", from the Bride of Lammermoor by Sir Walter Scott

- 1 variation of the button titled, "Blondel", the minstrel to Richard I of England. Richard was imprisoned by the French on his way home from the crusades and held for ransom. Blondel located his master’s place of imprisonment by singing a song they had composed together beneath the window of each castle he came to until Richard acknowledged him.

- 1 variation of the button titled, "Love’s Service" from a painting by August Frederick Siegert called “The Friendly Act" where a woman holds out her arm and a gentleman kisses her hand

- 1 variation of the button titled, "Mary Tudor", which seems to be part of a pair of buttons with the other being called "Brandon" (not included in this lot). They are based on the story of the two lovers in “When Knighthood was in Flower” by Edwin Gaskoden. Mary was the beautiful sister of Henry VIII and Charles Brandon was a young nobleman, one of Henry’s favorites.

- 1 variation of the button titled, "First A Kiss" from a Victorian genre painting by Meyer von Bremen showing a little boy and girl at a fountain

- 1 unnamed button depicting a lady and a man playing a stringed instrument

These are as found and have various backings and run from 5/8" to 1 1/2" in size. There is weathering and patina from over 100 years of age and wear. Great for button collectors, sewing enthusiasts, fashion historians, history lovers and also work wonderfully fashioned into keepsakes such as jewelry. Take your favorite to your local jeweler and have them professionally transformed into wearable art such as necklaces, rings, and brooches.
