Silver Peasant Buttons and Ceramic Buttons

Hello Everyone! I hope that you are all  having a great weekend.

Here are some of the latest buttons from Love Buttons.

These first two photographs show silver peasant link or toggle buttons. They are highly collectable and fascinating buttons. The first is a Spanish-made button and has a marker's mark, which is apparently very rare. It was made c. 19th century and was worn on either a men's sleeveless jacket, or on a woman's dress sleeve. This button is up for auction on Love Buttons HQ on Ebay. It had a starting bid of just 99p and bidding is currently at £1.20. The auction ends on 31 Jan, 2012 at 19:34:21 GMT.

This second button is Croatian, also c. 19th century. It has a maker's mark stamped onto the bar. It is also up for auction on Love Buttons HQ, with a starting bid of 99p (current bidding at £1.04). The auction ends on 30 Jan, 2012 at 20:02:20 GMT.

For something completely different, what about this gorgeous, handmade ceramic button? They are made in Cornwall, England by Stockwell Ceramics and Love Buttons HQ is now stocking 20 different styles of Stockwell's buttons at £1.50 each. (There are also many other ceramic buttons available in a variety of styles.) This particular button is one of my favourites, made from white earthenware with dots of glaze in shades of teal and green. It would make the perfect focal-point closure for a handmade bag.


Bye for now.
