Antique Red Glass Estate Buttons
These gorgeous antique buttons are made of glass in a beautiful red color. The color of red is a little different, and I think, even better in person. They have touches of enamel painting in colors of blue and gold on the flower shapes on the tops. It is a set of 12 matching buttons. Since they have a round shape, these beauties didn't want to sit still for their photograph! They measure about 10mm - or about 3/8" across. They show age appropriate wear including a couple of chips and some expected fleabites, and wear to the enamel painting. The glass has irregularities that were in the making, including voids and molding marks, and open bubbles. The interesting thing about these buttons is that the sides of the buttons were individually ground, I suppose to smooth rough edges. These would be a great find for the clothing designer. They would also be nice to use on the clothes of a large antique doll. You will love them!!!
