Quick Overview

Very attractive and unusual Herbert Hoover campaign button mounted inside an elaborate frame with embossed graphic of the U.S. Capitol, eagle, stars and other symbols, then mounted to a ribbon. We have seen this item before as a watch FOB (attachement to a man's pocket watch) but this is the first time we've seen it attached to a ribbon. Sliver tone to the frame, which we have been told is sterling silver but we're not sure. Original.

Fob – this is a particular type of campaign item used to attach to a top of a pocket watch. A fob would hang out of a gentleman’s pocket where he kept his pocket watch. Some fobs were all metal while others has the appearance of a celluloid button attached to a cardboard backing. A fob may be attached to a leather strap or possibly a gold chain. Many fobs were produced during the early 1900’s with portraits of political candidate or names of political candidates.
