"The Dorset Button began In Shaftesbury, Dorset, probably between
the years 1680 to 1700. The first buttons were known as "High Tops" and
were made from a disc of horn from the Dorset Horn Sheep. It was covered
by a small piece of material and worked with a needle and thread to make a
conical shaped button. These buttons were much used for ladies' dresses."
For sale here is ONE Dorset button, in any of the listed colours, or a colour of your choice.
They are 2.5" (approx. 6cm) in diameter, and could be used for any number of things - an example of which is given in the last photograph.
The Dorset buttons have been made using a wooden curtain ring, so please hand-wash only, and dry thoroughly.
