One brass button, 7/8" in diameter
One brass button, 7/8" in diameter, picturing "The Crane and the Fish." $8.33 from Robin Larner, July, '99.
I can find this button in neither Big Book of Buttons nor Nelson and Sweat "Fables on Buttons" in The National Button Bulletin (Oct., '86). The button pictures a crane holding a creature aloft in its beak. The creature seems to me to be a fish. In the foreground are reeds and plants. The crane and vegetation are in brass against a black background formed by a hollowed out crater. The rim is serrated. There is a welded loop on the back.
