$2.50

Made in the USA

Basket buttons were a popular 18th century style of thread or “Dorset” button. Often buttons were cast or stamped in various metals to imitate the popular pattern. These buttons are identical to some labled as French buttons and pictured on page eight in Gentlemen on the Frontier: A Pictorial Record of the Culture of Michilimackinac. Our basket buttons are cast of the highest quality pewter and hand finished to perfection. In The Virginia Gazette of 1774, “RUN away . . .  an indented Servant Man . . .  by Trade a Tailor; had on, when he went away, a dark blue Coat with Silver Basket Buttons”.
