My favorite buttons - #7
I have a wide variety of black glass buttons -- and the unique shape of this one makes it a favorite! It's shaped like a boat, and then incised and accented with gold paint. On the reverse, the cut-out button hole. These buttons are sometimes mistakenly referred to as "jet" -- the actual jet ones are rarer, but from about the same era as the many small black glass varieties. I hope you've enjoyed celebrating National Button Week as much as I've enjoyed showing off some of my favorite, beautiful buttons!
