Happy Thanksgiving

Turkey buttons are rare..I showed the bottom 3 last year which are a modern plastic, antique 2 piece brass and a Arita porcelain.
I have only acquired the top 2 since then..metal with plastic dome and a pewter.

Rose button

A few legends of the ROSE

In Greece, rose petals were used to cure the bite of a mad dog.
Romans were sure that a rose petal floated in wine would prevent drunkeness.
The seed or rose hips are said to contain 20 times more Vitamin or Ascorbic Acid--found in oranges.
This antique horn button is available(under the misc. materials category
