The vintage silver brown agate oval centering this bracelet is an exemplification of the skill apex of mid-century German glassmakers.
Bohemian glassmakers were the first to develop methods for press-molding glass buttons in the early 19th century. After WWII, German glass artists advanced the glass making trade further by inventing marbled agate glass.
In this bracelet, we flanked the lovely agate glass cabochon with two authentic antique Victorian buttons and two striated brown West German glass doublets.
Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image.
