Jet Black Vintage Glass Buttons, Aurora Borealis, Germany, 3/8"
Incredible, sleek and shiny opaque vintage West German glass buttons in Jet AB. Beautiful unused vintage condition with still-shiny and smooth shank back. Round 10mm -- 3/8" diameter. 1/2" thick including shank. Limited supply.
AB is short for aurora borealis, the subtle hues of different colors on the surface of the button. It describes the shine that reflects the light and creates an array of pretty colors on just about any glass and sometimes even plastic... often beads and buttons.
These black buttons have this sheen to them. If you play around with them in the light, you'll see what we mean.
