Reference

Enchanting set of six 18th century sterling silver hunting buttons. Each of these 6 buttons is engraved by the same hand with a different scene. Three of the buttons illustrate a fox running at speed, hounds in full pursuit and the kill.... The other three buttons illustrate a horse in harness, a dog sniffing scents and a man loading a shotgun with his dog beside him.
Maker: Richard Gosling. Circa 1740.

These 18th century buttons are highly collectable and would look very good on a formal or velvet jacket of today.

The buttons are each clearly stamped on the reverse with makers mark only and the lion passant.

Very good indeed with a pleasing patina. The scratch at the bottom of the button with a horse is not very visible in real life and can be improved if the purchaser wishes.
