A lucky find -a story button?

I found this button and bought it for $6.  Yesterday I took it to my button expert and was told it was worth $20 - $25 NZ.  It's a story button evidently.. must be a story of a woman and a goat! Any ideas?

Pretty Buttons

SOME of my button collection that aren't so precious.  But don't they look colourful on show. 
See the little Bakelite box I won on Trade Me.  It's full of shell buttons of all sizes and shapes.
I have a good collection of old coat buttons but I especially love the one in the middle. 
It appears to be carved and was looking a bit worse for wear until I polished it

Art Deco??

A lucky assortment I won on Trade Me.  I love them all.

Pretty shiny buttons, more of the above
