Medieval button in the form of a rose made of bronze.

This pretty replica of a button in the shape of a rose petal was made according to historical models from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance and has an eyelet on the back.

Buttons in the form of flowers can be found several times in the finds from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance and were characteristic of the clothing of that time, in which long rows of buttons for the decorative closure of clothing were fashionable.

With the solid cast eyelet on the underside, the medieval button can be sewn onto the garment with just a few stitches.

The bronze button has the size: 1.2 x 0.6 cm. The eyelet is 2 mm wide.

The medieval button is made of high quality jewelry bronze.

The button appeared very late in Europe and was mediated by oriental influences via the trade routes of long-distance drivers across the Mediterranean to the north, but was still hardly widespread before the mid-13th century. The button was often spherical in the Middle Ages, but flat buttons were also common. The medieval buttons were not provided with holes, but had a small eyelet on the back with which you could sew the button on the robe. In the Middle Ages, the buttons were often made of tin, but buttons made of brass, bronze and even silver were also found. Unlike today, the button was attached to the hem of the robe in the Middle Ages and closed on the opposite side with an eyelet.
