Petite Aurora in Pink 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.
This design flaunts two vintage pink satin glass buttons adorned with hand-painted coppery-gold sunbursts that we think give them a lovely Art Moderne feel. They were manufactured by the B. Blumenthal company under the trade name Exquisit, and sold for ten cents a card.
We’ve paired the buttons with rare vintage pink satin Czech glass shields.
