Hunting the boar.

From the traditions of the Indian Princely States and earlier, the sporting pig-sticking of British India and ‘the Raj’, and hound driven hunting in Europe we have gained a wonderful history of boar hunting and some magnificent buttons to go with it.  There are many boar hunts whose buttons don’t feature the animal itself, but here are just a few examples of those that do.
