Visit of Dr. Stork button

The stork is wearing top-hat, ribboned glasses and carrying cane advances with dignity as the butler announces him.
from the big book of buttons
"A beautifully detailed button of stamped brass. Children must have recognized these characters instantly in the 1880's but the identity of the story is not known at present."
I did a little research and couldn't find anything about this story..the button is antique and scarce.
