HISTORIQUE: Daisy and Button (DB) is one of the most popular patterns in pressed glass ever made. The basic pattern is made up of eight-sided buttons which surround geometrically stylized flowers.
The pattern was so popular that some variation of DB was made by almost every major Victorian era American glass company.
Makers include Hobbs, Brockunier & Co. (their version of DB was named simply "Pattern 101"), LG Wright, Fenton, and probably a few others.
