MOF676 - Boxed set of inlaid pearl dress buttons

In stock


Charming set of antique/vintage dress buttons.  The tops are mother of pearl, with an incised cornucopia holding a rose - the motif is inlaid or infilled with black and gold.  The black is probably tarnished silver.  Rose gold coloured rim, back, and loop shank.  Unmarked.  The buttons sit in their original box, lined in gold velvet and silk.  Box is paper-covered card, imitating leather.  Button size1/2" (1.3 cm).  Probably dates to early 20th century.  Condition is commensurate with age - slight rubbing to the decoration as shown, but still a very attractive boxed set.
