Horn Button Molds
Cloth and thread covered buttons were one of the most common buttons found on Men’s clothing in the 18th & early 19th century. Occasionally they were found on Lady's gowns & jackets as well. Button molds could be made of wood, horn or bone. Molds are commonly dug at sites, found by eye on the River Thames and of course survive on extant garments in collections. Our horn molds have a domed top and are well suited for cloth covered buttons. Good for dark colored cloth or dark thread buttons. Also good if you plan on washing your garment.
