Boxed Set Colonial Buttons... 200th Anniversary American Independence... Arizona Chemical Company
An unusual collector's set of special reproduction Colonial buttons, produced for the 200th anniversary of American Independence, so c.1976 in date. A set of seven matching buttons, three approx. 18mm and four are 15mm across, in their original presentation box with a little leaflet inside to explain their history. The buttons are made of pewter in a similar way to the originals- a lead, tin and antimony alloy. The buttons have been decorated with an attractive heart pattern and have developed a slight patina but have never been used. The booklet gives a short history of the birth of the nation, and comemmorates the 200th anniversary of Independence. The buttons were produced for the Arizona Chemical Company of New Jersey and the booklet has a facsimile signature from the company Vice President HW Bajak. The box measures approx. 13.5cm by 9cm and has a lovely illustration of a man in colonial era costume on the front- a couple of splits to the corners, minor marks and scuffs but otherwise complete and it presents well. Please see all photos.
