The decoration with the Bohemian glass button is made by the traditional and now almost forgotten method of pressing glass bars in furnaces. Patient manual work accompanies the entire production process of pressing, grinding and painting. The glass button is then glued to the gold or silver closure of the shirt cuff. The YABLOGLASS buttons production combines traditional metal and glass jewelry making in the Jablonec region.
Faded glory of the Bohemian glass button
The glass buttons were in the region of Jablonec the main livelihood for local jewelry manufactures and individuals from the middle of the 19th century until the middle of the 20th century. The Jablonec glass button wandered around the world. The painted glass button as part of the clothing accessory has been completely pushed out of the market in the second half of the 20th century by the plastic industrial buttons. Of the hundreds of Bohemian glass button makers, only few individuals – enthusiast continue the business these days.
The Renaissance of the Bohemian glass button
