    PegsButtons
    (19 items)

    All but two of these antique buttons have small jewels whose glass centers do not cover the entire fronts of the buttons.
    The fields surrounding the glass centers are trimmed with Galena, which is a glittering gray ore of lead.
    Ground galena is sprinkled onto a circular band of stiff paper or lightweight cardboard which was first covered with an adhesive.

      Interesting Peg and they look great too.
      What age are we looking at here?
