Superior Buttons


 


 

A very fine example of raised whitework worked on an almost transparent linen cloth. The design is a half circle on an unfinished piece of cloth. I think the work was intended to be a small collar, probably for a child, which was never finished, cut out or attached to a dress. The flowers have a wonderful three dimensional effect with each petal stitched individually.

The button box is a Victorian box which contained  a large quantity (ten dozen - or 120) of cloth buttons of the type shown in the image. 

Photographed by Ann in England and printed in Japan.
