Darling pair of antique floral paperweight glass buttons. One with lovely pink rose in clear glass, and the other with white rose. green leaves, in red background, and set in a ribbed clear glass giving the rose more depth.
Historically paperweight buttons refer to glass buttons that resemble glass desk paperweights,and were first made in Europe in the mid 1800's. Many have a base with a preformed design & a cap of clear glass that covers from the top to the base. Glass artists would make these by building on the wire shank, creating the design,and then add clear glass while working over a flame to fuse into a single round piece of glass. Other glass blowers would insert the shank at the end of the process while the glass was still malleable.
Vintage buttons are in lovely condition, min.shank ageing, and no chips or cracks.
