HELLO , THIS LISTING IS FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL PAIR OF VERY RARE 18TH CENTURY GERMAN ENAMELED BUTTONS IN THEIR ORIGINAL LEATHER PRESENTATION CASE. THESE GORGEOUS BUTTONS WERE PART OF A LARGE COLLECTION OF BUTTONS OWNED BY MY GREAT AUNT WHO WAS A VERY SERIOUS COLLECTOR IN THE 1930'S AND 40'S.

PAIR OF GERMAN ENAMELED BUTTONS , LATE 18TH CENTURY IN ROMAN NUMERALS. THEIR DESCRIPTION READS AS FOLLOWS : "CIRCULAR WITH SILVER MOUNTS , PAINTED WITH MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES IN BRILLIANT COLORS , FITTED IN ORIGINAL LEATHER CASE ". THERE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO DAMAGE OR REPAIRS. THEY MEASURE JUST UNDER 1 1 / 4 INCH IN DIAMETER. THE BACKS AS SEEN IN THE PHOTOS ARE DECORATED AS WELL. THERE IS A WHITE SPOT ON THE BACK OF EACH BUTTON THAT I DONT KNOW FOR SURE HOW IT WAS CREATED , BUT I CAN ASSUME IT MAY BE FROM THE BACKS RESTING AGAINST THE KILN SERVICE WHEN THEY WERE FIRED. THE FRONTS ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. THE LEATHER CASE AS SEEN IN THE PHOTO HAS A LOT A WARE TO IT , THE LEATHER IS VERY DRY FROM AGE AND THE TOP IS SLIGHTLY LOOSE. IT STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL ROYAL WAX SEAL. TO FIND A PAIR OF BUTTONS IN THEIR ORIGINAL PRESENTATION CASE IS VERY RARE AND THE FACT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SEPARATED OVER THE YEARS IS AMAZING.
