Day 309: Military #onebuttonaday by Gina Barrett

This button is based on some on a pair of breeches, in the Met. They date ca. 1740 (1981.118.1) and are lovely. I should have used a slightly thinner gold thread I think - this is just a little too fat, but, it was the closest in style that I had.

Name: Military
Type: Thread wrapped
Materials: 20mm tagua nut mould / silk thread / gold passing
