We continue offering items from a consignment that have been in a Southwestern New Hampshire family for years, as we have now discovered back into the first half of the 19th century. My consignor explains; To the best of my knowledge my family were primarily farmers in Dublin, NH. There were several generations living on the farms at the same time. Farm income was supplemented by various means. Hiriam Carey was the Dublin carriage driver for Mark Twain and my Grandmother was a seamstress who also made costumes for the likes of Amelia Earhart and Joseph Linden Smith during their stays in Dublin. Though there may not have been a lot of money to purchase luxuries' or non essential items sometimes the family was given small things for either payment or in appreciation. Things were acquired to use not look at and things were handed down from generation to generation. My family interacted with Dublin summer people through odd jobs and the piano playing of both my mother and grandmother. We have early sheet music from the days when the ladies played for summer theatre shows. My mother and grandmother were founders of a local button club and since my grandmother was a seamstress who made costumes for the Dublin Art Colony plays many of their special collected buttons were remnants of other peoples' purchases. My father worked for as a window clerk at the Keene Post Office selling stamps for many years. He was able to buy mint stamps and after marketing promotions for newly released stamps were long over he was given permission to take home the now obsolete promotional material.

We continue to inventory many early 20th and late 19th games and toys, early books and guides, 19th and 20th century pinbacks, leather mini pennants, buttons and several early fans. Please keep checking back as we open more boxes and learn more history of the family and their treasures, collected by 4 or 5 generations.

Here we have a fantastic collar button, approx. 22mm in diameter, which appears to be made mostly of copper with a brass shank. Relief work in Asian style shows a stylized bird of prey on a branch of tree preparing to attack a fox made of a gold colored metal.

This button is in very good condition with just expected wear.

As always , I offer this item with no reserve and a low minimum bid, satisfaction absolutely guaranteed! Buyer pays $1.25 1st class/$5.00 Priority Mail for shipping.
