Medieval people (just like us) liked to accessorise - and the bling for the masses was made of pewter. These pewter buttons are based on pieces from medieval and renaissance Europe, dating from the 12th to the 16th century. They're handmade in the traditional way - individually cast in hand-carved soapstone moulds.

This listing is for a set of SIX pewter buttons with a small unadorned domed design (see my other listings for a larger domed button). The face of each button is approximately 8.5mm across. They have a shank with a loop on the back for sewing to your clothing. The depth of this shank (8.5 mm) makes them ideally suited for thick fabrics such as on coats and jackets (or indeed cottes and doublets!).

These buttons are made from lead-free pewter (lead poisoning might be historically accurate but really, do we actually want to go that far?) and, like all pewter, will develop a matt patina with time. As these buttons are hand-cast in stone moulds, small variations in their finish are part of their nature.

I'm happy to create custom listings for larger numbers - just use the contact link to message me. International buyers, please contact me via Felt to arrange shipping.

I hope you enjoy wearing these little bits of history as much as I enjoy making them.
