Pink Moonglow Earrings - Five & Dime Find
These elegant earrings feature buttons that collectors’ dreams are made of. We found them at a closing sale at the Worthmore Five and Dime in Rayne, Louisiana, still attached to their original cards. They are some of the most exquisite West German glass buttons we’ve ever found.
We think the pink moonglow glass buttons we chose for these earrings are a stunning example of lost button-making art. They were manufactured in Western Germany by the B. Blumenthal company under the trade name Costumakers, and sold for ten cents a card.
In this design, we’ve paired the moonglows with vintage pink Czech satin glass drops.
