1 brass three-piece button of the Lion in a Lush Valley
1 brass three-piece button of the Lion in a Lush Valley, 5/8" in diameter. Gift of Robin Larner, Rochester, NY, through Ebay, May, '99.
The goat seems not to be pictured, instead there is a crag that sticks out almost directly above the lion who wants to beckon him down to the lush valley. Big Book of Buttons shows an apparently larger button with almost the same image on Plate 152 #7. Do I pick up some tint in this brass? The button may even have four pieces, since a very pleasant shiny rim encircles the whole scene and may be independent of the button's facing.
