Carved Horn Hunt Stud Button Retriever c1890

  • Product Info

    An outstanding, oversized Late Victorian stud button of carved horn.  A handsome retriever stands at point in tall grasses during a hunt.  This piece has the look of a wax seal, with the dog's portrait beautifully rendered and finely framed in the hand carved horn.  The front of this picture button is polished, except for the intaglio areas.  The button back shows, under magnification, turnings made by the carving tool. The back has a brass stud that goes through the button hole reserved for it. This picture button would have been worn on the lapel of a hunting jacket or at the throat of a shirt or blouse.   In remarkably fine condition, showing only anticipated age and wear patterns ~ some minor shallow surface scratching on the back only.  2 1/8”L X 1 3/8”W.  Free USPS Shipping
