8 bull's eye glass/brass buttons, 19th century

Vintage clothing collectors who purchase antique buttons to restore a garment sometimes become enthralled with the beauty of these tiny works of art. It is easy to see why. Modern buttons do not offer the same high quality of workmanship and artistic beauty.

These buttons have bull's-eye-style centers of amber colored crushed glass, surrounded by rings of black and white glass. The three dimensional glass centers are set in brass backs with shanks.

The condition is excellent.

Each button has a 3/8" diameter.
