Buttons Around the World
“There is surely something charming in seeing the smallest thing done so thoroughly.” – Charles Dickens’ comment on Victorian buttons
Buttons are fascinating crafting items. These tiny works of art made the button-making trade a mainstay in several regional economies through the late 18th and early 19th centuries. With an enthralling history and innumerable uses, it is no surprise that these tiny creations have been studied, documented, displayed and admired in several dedicated button museums across the world. Here are some of the noteworthy ones:
- Waterbury Button Museum: Located at The MATT in Connecticut, USA, this museum has over 10,000 exquisite buttons on permanent display. It showcases buttons from all over the world, including picture buttons and buttons made from Czechoslovakian glass, Japanese enamel, ivory, wood, and more.
- Dalton Stevens Button Museum: Located in a town called Bishopville in South Carolina, USA, this museum displays the unusual button art created by hobbyist Dalton Stevens. A self-proclaimed ‘Button King’, Stevens decorated a number of his personal items with button art, including his suits, shoes, car, guitar, and even a hearse and an outhouse.
- The Button Museum: This museum in Riviera Di Rimini, Italy displays a fine collection of over 8,500 buttons divided into 3 sections. These are categorized by their political, social or fashion history, types of materials used and a dedicated section of distinctive buttons made from precious materials.
- Button Museum, Grandmother’s Buttons: Located in the town of St. Francisville, in Louisiana, USA, this is an unusual combination of a store, studio, museum and historic building combined into one. The museum celebrates fine craftsmanship and displays thousands of ornately crafted antique fasteners.
