|Collectible Trapunto Buttons
The late Sara Wolfe made these lovely buttons by reviving the almost
forgotten art of trapunto--raising designs on fabric. They are 1 1/2" in
diameter. Some have plastic backs and plastic shanks and others have
metal backs and copper shanks. Sara signed them "SVW". Sara was the
daughter of HGW maker of the Wessel watch crystal buttons. She was
the mother of Shirley Burgess button maker and they cost $9 each. If you
pass your cursor over a button it will flip to show you a side view.
