ANtique Dated 1800 Political GEORGE WASHINGTON GILT Portrait Button brooch

$45.00
Quantity available: 1

 

THis button pinback has the patent date of 1800 on the back on the rim  of this. As you can see, the background is  hand painted gold leaf, with the portrait that was produced on top of that. Some of the old portrait buttons with women on the front, be it with transfer or painting,  had the gold background, but you don't see many with the men much less the President. As a matter of fact I have never seen one with the president. This brooch is 1 1\/3" across and is guaranteed to be an antique and not a reproduction.    We offer Layaway on all our Etsy pieces regardless of which site it comes from. Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm. Please use photos to make your decisions.
