Holland & Sherry Textured Brass Blazer Button (Made in England)

Flat-topped, matte brass (gold) metal blazer button, with a faux fabric textured center, and a double shiny rim. Made in England by Holland & Sherry. Loop shank backing.


Holland & Sherry brass blazer buttons are hand-made in England. Each button is cut from solid brass, individually die stamped in the traditional way, and then rough buffed by hand in preparation for plating in either 9CT gold, silver, antique silver or bronze finishes. There are 19 individual processes involved in producing each button. Many of their buttons also feature enamel detailing applied with a fine paintbrush, before being fired in a kiln at a very high temperature to ensure permanence. After cooling, the button is carefully inspected and the raised detail is burnished by hand.
