VERY RARE 18TH CENTURY FRENCH FEATHER BUTTERFLY SPECIMEN BUTTON UNDER GLASS. HELLO , THIS LISTING IS FOR A VERY RARE 18TH CENTURY FRENCH FEATHER BUTTERFLY SPECIMEN BUTTON UNDER GLASS. THESE BUTTONS ARE REALLY HARD TO FIND , I'VE SEARCHED THE INTERNET , AND THE ONLY OTHER I WAS ABLE TO FIND IS IN THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM. IM SURE THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS , I JUST COULD NOT FIND ONE OFFERED FOR SALE. THIS ONE DATES TO THE MID TO LATE 18TH CENTURY. IT IS MADE OF SMALL COLORED FEATHERS ARRANGED TO SIMULATE A BUTTERFLY OR MOTH.

THE ANTENNAE AND LEGS APPEAR TO BE EITHER INK OR SEPIA ON PAPER. THE RIM IS BRASS AND THE BACK IS TIN. IT IS IN PERFECT UNTOUCHED CONDITION. THE GLASS HAS NO CHIPS OR CRACKS , THE BACK HAS THE EXPECTED AGE DISCOLORATION USUALLY SEEN ON THESE BUTTONS.

IT ALSO HAS THE NUMBERS 1. 50 IN PENCIL , WHICH I WILL ASSUME WAS THE PRICE OF IT A LONG TIME AGO!

THE PAPER HAS THE EXPECTED AGE DISCOLORATION WITH SOME FOXING. ITS SIZE IS 1 3/ 8 INCHES IN DIAMETER. A GREAT ADDITION TO AN ADVANCED COLLECTION.

My personal standards are high , so I strive to research , describe and picture all items in my auctions as accurately as possible. Most items are vintage or antique and therefore normal ware from age and use is to be expected. If any imperfections or damage is present other than normal ware , it will be mentioned and pictured in the listing. All items are carefully and thoughtfully packed to ensure safe arrival.
