BT4145GK: Japanese Geisha
These are outstanding hand painted vintage buttons on original card, undisturbed in original box. They feel like ceramic or bisque/porcelain on the underside and have a glossy glazed top. Each of the 6 buttons depicts a Geisha, each hand painted so they will vary slightly from each other. Each measures about 1/2" in diameter. Original box measures 2~7/8" X 2~1/4". Very unusual and charming! You are purchasing the box with six buttons on card, as pictured. I believe these are referred to as SATSUMA buttons. Some very faint crazing visible under a magnifying glass. ONE button, similar but with a less attractive image, sold recently on eBay for 45.00.
