National Button Week Part VII 2014 “The Ladies” misc group

Last day of National Button Week—Hope you’ll find
time today to go out button hunting!

First I’m showing a group of seven miscellaneous buttons.
Do you have any like these?

Click to enlarge and study the buttons.  The largest,
the lady with the wild bonnet, is 1 1/8″ diameter.  The
brass one in the middle, top row, the one with the girl
and the bird, is known (from what I’ve read) by three
different names: Pigeon Bride, Minnehaha, or Taste (ugh!)

Haven’t shown you the backs of these buttons, they
are just plain.

And do you remember my old post about L’Aiglon?
Button Talk: L’Aiglon.   (the “little eagle”)  That post
gives a good history of the next button featured . . .

This is a grouping of those Sarah Bernhardt buttons
that I’ve found since I wrote that post.  Do you remember
the French connection with those buttons?  It’s fun to
find variations of them.

at top of card is 1 3/8″ in diameter.

Hope you enjoyed the button show-and-tell.
