This necklace showcases a brilliant Czech glass button featuring an energetic whirl of ginkgo leaves floating in a clear glass dome above an iridescent green pool.

This distinctive button was hand-pressed in antique molds and manufactured using centuries-old processes and is a testament to the enduring talents of the remaining Czech glass artisans still working today.

The Czech button hangs from an antique and one-of-a-kind Victorian-era chased or hammered brass button. Metalworkers forged the lovely designs on these buttons by ‘hammering’ on their backside to create a low relief design or ‘chasing’ on the front side to sink the metal. 

In this piece:

  • Small chased or hammered brass button, circa 1870-1880
  • Modern iridescent green glass button hand-pressed in the Czech Republic in antique molds
  • Brass pronged setting stamped today in the USA in vintage dies
  • Brass-plated pewter setting cast in Louisiana
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 20” with a 4” extender
