This Antique Pierrot with Lute Picture Button shows a seated and smiling Pierrot clown playing a lute, surrounded by flowers and a rope border. The 1.3125" (33-34 mm) in diameter button has an embossed center in a deep gold colored metal (brass?) and a dark silver-toned frame. The backing is brass with a molded shank but no maker's marks. Manufacturer and exact age are unknown, although it is likely that this button comes from the late Victorian or Edwardian era. This Antique Pierrot with Lute Picture Button is in very good condition, although there is some minor edge wear and denting to the brass back. The button has been polished.
