Old Sheep & Weathervane Gold Buttons Sporrongs Sweden
$105

Nine beautiful gold tone BUTTONS by "SPORRONGS, MADE IN SWEDEN," and so-impressed on the underside of each button. Sporrongs is one of the oldest companies in Sweden, having been established in Stockholm in about 1667. Items by this respected company are of the highest quality, and are generally sought-after by collectors.

Our buttons are in very good condition with no dents or damage, although all of them show some oxidation where the plating has worn, and some have a little verdegris on the back. We do not alter the items we sell, so I'm quite sure a little cleaning and polishing will bring sparkling results.

The raised metal emblem on each piece, clearly depicts a mature Sheep in its full wool coat standing on an arrow-shaped Weathervane. This is an attractive and highly collectible scene. The largest button measures about 7/8" diameter; the 8 smaller buttons are about 1/2" plus 1/16". We do not know the exact age of the buttons, but it is possible they are antique; we leave age to the buyer's judgment. Free U.S. Shipping; $19 International.
