Description

Join Joanne Irons on the Button Express for an educational journey. Clearly all Volkswagens are cars, but not all cars are Volkswagens. So, it is with sporting buttons. Just because a button pictures an exotic animal, a hunter with a dog and rifle or an angler casting for fish it is not necessarily a sporting button. What criteria separates sporting buttons from hunt club buttons, or those depicting sporting pastimes? Let Joanne unravel the confusion. She will lead you on a journey of late 18th century through 19th century British nobility and landed gentry lifestyles. She will take a glimpse at English, French and United States sporting button makers, demonstrate what denotes a sporting button set and tighten up the description of a true sporting button. Lots of examples.
