Fierce Crusader Knight: King Richard the Lionheart

Fierce Crusader Knight
One Piece Stamped Brass
Riveted and Faceted Cut Steels
NBS Large, 1 7/16"

Fierce Crusader Knight - Back

When I saw his face in a button listing, I knew I had to have him, damage and all. He is missing one cut steel. I think it adds to his character. Note the lion on his shield, and the Knight's chain he wears at his breast . He may be a depiction of King Richard the Lionheart. The button is made of one piece stamped brass, with 12 faceted and riveted cut steels embellishing a brick border.

  1. It's a beautiful one. It just breathes authenticity.

  2. Hi Lori, Thanks. I thought so, too. The reality of life in those times was harsh. It's not so much that the character is noble; it's that he's weathered and stalwart, grim but not beaten, capable of mercy as well as violence.
