Austrian Metal Buttons x 6 (code 106)


1 in stock


These buttons were made at a little button shop in Austria, which has been owned by the same family for 260 years.  Johann Mayer started the business in 1758 after studying button making in Munich. The old  button making equipment is no longer used to manufacture buttons but can be seen preserved on the premises, which is still selling buttons, lace and tailor made clothing.  These buttons are vintage but have never been used. You will get six buttons of the same design, size 12mm.  Self shanks. I chose them at the button shop whilst in Austria.  The photos do not do them justice.  The top of the button is rounded with a dark red glass centre which glows under light.

They are truly beautiful buttons.
