William Tell button (another version
William Tell holds an arrow up to the governor Gessler, while his son carries the apple which his father has pierced with an arrow whilst balanced on his son’s head.
below is updated information from the new edition of the Big Book of Buttons
Huguenin buttons were imported from Switzerland by an American button dealer in the 1960’s. Huguenin was probably not the artist or modeler, but the company that made the buttons. The buttons were said to have been made from old dies.
