Set of Six Collectable Gilt Buttons, owls, dogs & monkeys: France C19th
A unique and rare set of collectible gilt metal buttons dating from the mid 19th century, France.
Finely crafted with the most extraordinary attention to detail, each button is a work of art in its own right.
On their original display or sample card, they are unused and are part of a larger collection - please see our other listings for more examples.
The original card has an overall patina of age and some scuffs and knocks to the edges and corners as you would expect in an item of this antiquity.
Made form gilt metal, in either old gold or in a pewter colour they would work very well mounted and framed with a box frame as part of a collection.
Card: 12cm W X 8cm H
