original c. 1850s early 1860s - Jenny Lind waistcoat button



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Illustrated here with a quarter for size comparison, this little waist coat button reflects the period popularity of the Swedish Nightingale, Jenny Lind whos 1850-1852 tour of the United Stated under contract with P. T. Barnum was such a sensation that glass houses made glass inserts with her image to be marketed to button makers for inclusion in the period three piece buttons. Remaining in nice all original condition this scarce remnant of the just pre Civil War with use through the 1860s will make a nice addition to any period sewing basket or as a female remembrance in a soldiers house wife sewing kit.
