Large The Fox and the Stork button, 1.5" in diameter
Large The Fox and the Stork button, 1.5" in diameter, pressed wood set in a realistic twig-like brass rim. $50 from Robin Larner, Rochester, NY, through Ebay, May, '99.
A really striking button! As Robin noted, there is a small sliver missing at high noon. The motif is well known to The Big Book of Buttons (Elizabeth Hughes and Marion Lester, Second printing: 1991, Plate 152, #5) but not in this unusual material. A wonderful acquisition!
