Item Description:

 

For today’s auction, we are featuring a pair of rare oversized cameo buttons / buckles.

This pair of cameo buttons / buckles measure 2 – 5/8” in height and is 2 – 3/8” in width. The portrait showcase in the cameo appears to be that of an Egyptian male (or possibly a female) who is wearing an Egyptian headdress complete with asp. It looks like the model used  Based on our experience it does appear that these buttons are made out of celluloid but we are not positive.

This pair of buttons have held up rather nicely despite their age. There are 9 black spots on the cameo facing right. This may be the result of age and may need a color touchup or possibly a light cleaning.

The cameo facing left is intact which no black spots present. There are 2 tiny gold spots present on the back / side of the head.  I suspect that this button may just need a light cleaning.

Please look very closely at our pictures and you will see that the buttons shown are quite rare.

A unique pairing that will appeal to collector’s of rare / antique buttons.
