Grandmother's Buttons Chaillot Earrings

Grandmother's Buttons Chaillot Earrings

  • $37.00

These earrings showcase two antique jet glass buttons featuring delicate six-petalled flowers with every other petal in a matte finish. 

We discovered them in a dusty New York City Garment District warehouse over a decade ago in what was to this day one of our most brilliant button-hunting finds. A Parisienne newspaper, dated 1912, was still wrapped around the packages.

The jet buttons dangle from two captivatingly complex Art Deco-inspired brass stampings that we think highlight their beauty. We’ve named these earrings for the famous Parisian Art Deco palace, the Palais de Chaillot. 

In this piece:

  • Jet glass flowers, made in France, circa 1912
  • Two delicate brass stampings made today in the USA in vintage dies
