The rare matching pair of one-of-a-kind, antique brass buttons we chose for these cufflinks depict a man peacefully fishing on a river. They're sure to remind dad of lovely days spent fishing.

These buttons were manufactured for women at a time when the fairer sex was expected to exemplify purity and feminine restraint. So it’s rather strange that Victorian women wore masculine-themed fashion accessories such as these.

This is pure speculation, but women’s fashion in the Victorian era was highly restrictive. Women were laced up in layers and corsets from head to toe. Perhaps wearing masculine buttons was a small act of rebellion. We hope so!

In this piece:

  • One-piece stamped brass button, circa 1920-1940
  • Antiqued brass cuff link
