An 18th Century Button

An 18th Century Button: painting on Ivory "en grisalle" (in tones of black, white and grey) mounted under glass in a copper rim and brass back.

“Drew in some corn this morning.  John McPherson and wife came about 10 o’clock and stayed until about two.  We husked a little corn after they went away.  Rather unpleasant day.”

“Husked corn until about 4 o’clock and then picked up what we had husked and put it in the corn house.”
