Antique Victorian Egyptian Revival Enamel Pharaoh & Bronze Frame In 20thc Button For Sale
Large Antique Victorian Era Egyptian Revival Enamel Pharaoh &Bronze Frame that in the 20th C was Assembled with a Vintage Red Plastic type of material to form Unusual & Colorful Layered Button
Interesting and unusual button - I believe the enamel pharaoh plaque and outside bronze frame are from the Victorian period while the red vintage plastic type material is from later (likely in the early to mid 20th Century) at which time (or a little later in the 20th C. ) the entire button was assembled.
Hand painted enamel profile portrait of an Egyptian pharaoh on bronze plaque that is centered & attached by the shank through a small hole that has been drilled through the vintage red oval plaque that is in turn bordered with a decorative hand worked bronze open-back & saw-tooth frame.
Upon close inspection and/or magnification there are some areas directly on the thin vertical outside edge of the bronze frame that are somewhat lighter and rougher; a rather subtle indication that this piece was once attached to and part of some other piece of jewelry or other ornamental accessory.
