This necklace showcases a stunning mid-century Czech iridescent glass button in an unusual shade of yellow and mauve. It was hand pressed by a Czech glass artist working at the pinnacle of his craft.
Czech button artisans honed their skills for centuries, and then in the early 18th century, they were the first to start pressing hot glass into molds. By the early 20th century, they’d mastered their craft and exported exquisitely detailed glass buttons like this one worldwide.
The Czech oval hangs from acanthus leaf brass stamping, manufactured today with an antique mold and a one-of-a-kind Victorian-era metal antique button.
Every antique button is one and only, chosen just for you so that it will be different from the image.
Large Czech glass opal, circa 1950-1960
