7 Handmade Textured Bronze 1" (2.4cm) round buttons with Patina
Back in the day, things were not punched out by machines. Back in the day, someone actually put their hand to an item during it's making, and the variations thereof are why we celebrate the quality of the antique. (That, and the fact that all the cheap stuff made long ago has fallen apart by now.)
In a hundred years, I bet someone will still have these buttons on a sweater somewhere. They will go on a piece you knit, and be worn and loved. When the elbows go out and can no longer be patched, these buttons will be cut off and put in a battered button tin, to re-emerge on a cardigan twenty years later with the next generation of knitters. And so on, and so on.....
Made of bronzclay, these buttons were formed and and a rayed texture applied layer by layer. They were then kiln fired in a special oxidizing media, and tumbler polished. They are each an ample 1" in diameter, and each one is a little lighter than a nickel.
Please hand wash!
THESE ARE A DISCONTINUED/ONE OF A KIND SET, SO ONCE THEY'RE GONE, THEY'RE GONE! :)
