The innovative setting we used for this design enabled us to use two large buttons in one reversible necklace. 

One side features a modern, hand-pressed Czech glass button made by one of the few remaining Czech button artisans using antique molds and centuries-old manufacturing processes. We chose the color and the molds ourselves when we visited the Czech Republic.

On the flip is a one-of-a-kind, antique, celluloid wafer button. Celluloid was discovered in the 1860s during a failed attempt to manufacture ivory-free billiard balls. 

Wafer buttons are distinguished by layers of green, tan, brown, and black celluloid, each with a different carved pattern. 

Please note that every wafer button is a one and only so yours will not look exactly like the one in the photo.

In this piece:

  • Modern Czech hand-pressed glass button
  • One of a kind celluloid wafer button, circa 1920
  • Quatrefoil brass stamping, made today in the USA in vintage dies
  • A brass-plated pewter setting made today in the USA in vintage dies 
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 32”
