A selection of beautiful Antique Victorian Czech black glass buttons. These buttons were hand molded using hand engraved steel button molds and have incredible fine detail. Each button was hand pressed using button pliers before being hand trimmed and polished. Many were made with elements resembling marcasites or rhinestones and quite often, imitation fabric. Often described as "lacy style" buttons as they are often lace like in structure and the same molds were used to produce true lacy glass buttons in clear glass. Nearly always made with 4 way box shanks or loop hump shanks. Made by the Gebruder Mahla export comany of Jablonec, Czechoslovakia in the 1880's - 1900's.
