Warrior King & Queen, Intricately Molded Vintage Horn Button, Coat Of Arms, Caen For Sale
We continue offering items from a consignment that have been in a Southwestern New Hampshire family for years, as we have now discovered back into the first half of the 19th century. My consignor explains; "To the best of my knowledge my family were primarily farmers in Dublin, NH. There were several generations living on the farms at the same time. Farm income was supplemented by various means. Hiriam Carey was the Dublin carriage driver for Mark Twain and my Grandmother was a seamstress who also made costumes for the likes of Amelia Earhart and Joseph Linden Smith during their stays in Dublin. Though there may not have been a lot of money to purchase luxuries' or non essential items sometimes the family was given small things for either payment or in appreciation. My mother and grandmother were founders of a local button club and since my grandmother was a seamstress who made costumes for the Dublin Art Colony plays many of their special collected buttons were remnants of other peoples' purchases."
Here we have a molded horn button approx. 1 3/8" in diameter featuring a high relief image of a fierce looking bearded man with decorated helmet. Opposite him is a classically beautiful woman wearing what appears to be a tiara with star. At the top of the button is what may be a Coat of Arms with Bow & Arrows, classical torch and what may be 2 flaming hearts.At the bottom is a round decorated shield in front of crossed spears. On the back below the metal shank is molded CAEN and above may be L.C. J. & F.
This button is in fairly good condition with damage in the form of a scratch that runs from the left bottom diagonal through part of the beaded frame of the man's image to the upper right. There is also some damage around the shank.
