Original true lacy buttons are remarkable for their complex technology. The final appearance created the effect of a button made of expensive glass consisting of multicolored cut stones or marcasite and finished with borders or lattices made of precious metals. Generally they were made from clear glass, sometimes colored, reverse painted and finished with reverse black japanning.
