This three-piece brass button mold is made to cast three small and one large buttons at a time, all with integral round shanks, the small buttons measuring about 17mm in diameter and the larger about 26mm. The mold is unmarked and the buttons cast would have plain faces. The short handles would have been fitted into larger and longer wood grips, which were likely changed over time and seldom survive. The mold is in very good condition. It shows some wear and dings along the top of one gate from pouring and likely tapping on the mold to loosen the castings. The brass has an even aged patina over the body and a little light on the tips of the handles where they were once concealed by the wood grips. A nice mold, tough to date precisely, but likely dating from the last quarter of the 18th into the early years of the 19th and the mold would fit a colonial collection or a display focusing on the frontier, where large-scale commercially manufactured buttons would have been slow to take over.  [SR]
