Lacy glass is thought to be of Bohemian origin, late 19th or early 20th century, reknown for its metallic back paint and lacy pressed front surfaces. The color layer is usually painted over with black or silver paint to preserve it. This is another glass button designed to complement shot silk. These buttons came in very small sizes, too--and you can imagine a line of them shimmery up a lady's arm from wrist to elbow or perhaps over the slim torso of a male peacock's silken waistcoat. These buttons must have loved candle and gas light! This 4-leaf clover would make a lovely St. Patrick's day gift for your favorite button lover. The surface sparkles in silver luster while a silken shift of peacock blue and lemon yellow skedaddle across the leaves from deep within. This gorgeous button measures 1 & 1/16" in excellent condition.
