One of The Top 5 Rarities In The Auction:
1 Extra Large size 19th century Handkerchief Corner button.
This is perhaps the rarest example of Handkerchief corner buttons that exists. Not only is it extremely rare but it is one of the most charming ones in our opinion. The button in relief depicts a young boy in a boat with the anchor below. The background is designed with paisleys and scrolls and the detail overall is incredible. From the collection of the late Shirley Case.
