1 button depicting Doré's illustration of "The Little Fish and the Fisherman," 3/4" in diameter. $12 from Joni Goldbarg through Ebay, April, '99.
This is a pressed, one-piece silvered brass button in fair to good condition. Like the larger Wiedeman exemplar of the same scene but less distinct, this button adapts Doré's illustration of La Fontaine's V 3 ("Le petit Poisson et le Pêcheur") well to the circular form. In fact, even the backs of the two buttons are remarkably similar.
