The Sipping Hummingbird Picture Button c1875
A beautiful work of art in miniature, this applied brass and steel cut bead button shows us a hummingbird sipping a long drink from a garden blossom. The brass glows like gold; the steel cut beads sparkle like early rose-cut diamonds. Impressive detail for such an exquisitely tiny button. In perfect condition. Loop shank. ½” diameter This button is outstanding and would stand up well to being individually framed in a tiny shadow box, if you like.
