In the most delicious shade of soft torquoise.....6 round Bohemian uranium glass buttons circa 1910. They are beautiful to look at, wonderful to hold, and when you put a black light to them, man do they glow! I have a very large collection of antique Bohemian glass buttons from this time period. Many of them are art deco in style. The colours are wonderful and bright. They are new old stock from factories that closed in the 1920s but that were not until recently cleared up. But these are my favs. They are 1 1/4 inch in diameter. They have a "swirl" that just fits the thumb and makes you want to run your thumb around and around them. They do not have a scratch on them. I got them a few of years ago when I was traveling there for work. I made these little cards to show off my uranium buttons using an art deco image from the cover of a 1920s French fashion magazine. It's a little later than the probably age of manufacture of the buttons, but I think it suits them anyhow. I think they are very art deco, so I have categorized them there, along with under art glass. I could not figure out where uranium glass belongs - comment if you can help me there please! Hope you enjoy them!
