Is there a Button expert in the house! Brass & Pewter German button needs identification
I posted this in my finds thread, but thought I might get wider coverage in a separate post.
I found this amazing button at an 1850 homesite in upstate New York yesterday. It depicts a pack of dogs attacking a wild boar, and is made of Pewter with brass outer ring.
There is a back-stamp that reads "EINGETR MUSTER * W. L. R. * " , WHICH IS SHORTENED IN GERMAN from "EINGETRAGEN MUSTER", WHICH TRANSLATES TO
"REGISTERED PATTERN", like a trademark.
But I can't find anything about the * W.L.R. *, or about this incredible scene that depicts a pack of dogs attacking a Boar.
Believe it to be at least of Victorian area. Know it must be from Germany. But would like to narrow age, and possible find out the manufacturer and pattern name, if it's possible.
Oh how I LOVE this hobby!
Freedom isn't free, we must protect it. Many Thanks to all those in the U.S. Military and Law Enforcement, past and present, for taking lead in that fight.
