Flying Cranes Earrings - Once Upon a Button Limited EditionRegular price $80.00
These delightful earrings feature two stylized, Japanese-inspired flying cranes.
After flowers, birds are the most popular motif depicted on Victorian-era buttons. In the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution triggered mass migration from the countryside to the city, causing people to fetishize nature. We find the variety of birds pictured on buttons manufactured during this era astonishing.

- Brass-plated pewter settings made today in the USA
