An amazing find - 42 wonderful authentic antique Victorian'French Jet' buttons with brass shank and button loop on back. 25 larger buttons at 2.3cm diameter and 17 smaller buttons at 2cm diameter. Each one moulded with a central intaglio faceted diamond design which really catches the light and sparkles, surrounded by an intaglio chain design. Prince Albert died in 1861 and Queen Victoria wore only black for the rest of her life, creating a long-lasting fashion for black, not just for mourning wear, right through to the 1880s.These beautiful buttons are from that era and are a fabulous addition to any collection of antique buttons. They are French Jet (or black glass in imitation of jet). Please go through all the photos.
Measurements: 25 at 1in/2.3cm diameter and 17 at 0.75in/2cm diameter. Condition: Excellent antique condition with no problems.
