Little Art Nouveau American Silver Button - Spring

This is a very pretty American button marked '900' - a slightly lower percentage of silver than Sterling silver.  It dates from the turn of the century up to around 1910.  It has the word 'SPRING' on it along with a beautiful lady's head and shoulders.  There is a branch with leaves and flowers too - so romantic and so of the period.  There were probably designs like this for each of the four seasons but I only have Spring!   In the USA they would say that this lady is in the 'Gibson girl' style with her upswept hair style. The button has a self shank meaning that the loop on the back is also made of '900' silver.  This loop is quite generous in size so would allow for a safety pin to be fixed through it from behind to allow this lovely antique silver button to be worn as a brooch.  The condition of the button is good with just a few surface scratches; the casting is good and clear.  This button measures about 1.5cms in diameter.   If you are a button collector, a fan of Art Nouveau, or someone who loves antiques from the art nouveau period this is for you.  The price quoted is for one button only.
