Thread Covered Wire (Crosswheel) Buttons


Crosswheel may be a later term for these buttons which were likely called wire buttons in the 18th century. Crosswheel buttons were used on underclothes and waistcoats from the 18th to early 19th century. These hand made of 35/2 off white linen thread on solid brass rings and are about 1/2" across. These are very similar to the buttons on an extant c. 1770s white linen boy's waistcoat at the Connecticut Historical Society as well as several other extant waistcoats.

Hand made in the USA.
