Some of my favourite black glass buttons…

Black glass has been used to make buttons since Queen Victoria went into mourning for Prince Albert. Some of my favourite “modern” black glass buttons have designs highlighted with silver, gold or copper lustre. These buttons are post World War II.

 

This design reminds me of comets.

   

Oh, disco ball!!

 

Love this coppery lustre

  

                                                              I think this is my favourite

  

Faux cut steels

I think that their intricate design is beautifully offset by the single colour decoration – all-in-all some very elegant buttons.
