In this necklace design, a large, striking, hand-pressed Czech glass flower button hangs from an alluring, midcentury West German glass button.
The Czech glass button was hand-pressed in antique molds and manufactured using centuries-old processes. Its beauty is a lovely testament to the enduring talent of the few remaining Czech glass artisans still working today.
In this piece:
Jet glass button with gold luster, made in West Germany, circa 1950-1970
Modern jet glass flower button hand-pressed in the Czech Republic in antique molds
