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 “continue reading” for the photo . . .
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.
Here are closeups, and you can still click to enlarge. Button
at top of card is 1 3/8″ in diameter.
And that’s the end of this year’s National Button Week.
Your comments are always welcome—(your email address
will not show.) Tell me what you know about the buttons
we talked about this week–we’re all learning here.
Hope you enjoyed the button show-and-tell.
