MID-18TH CENTURY BUTTON MOLD BY JOSIAH MILLER

$595.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 30-1778

This brass mold produces four buttons ranging in size from a large coat to cuff sized. The mold consists of two brass arms approx. 7.00 inches long with wood handles on each end. These close over the face plate which casts the main part of the buttons. The faces of the buttons are smooth plain circles which are slightly domed. The shanks are formed when the two brass arms are closed over the face plate.

The exterior surfaces show signs of much use with a light mark on the face plate of “IM” for Josiah Miller. In the 18th Century the written “J” looked like an “I.”

According to research Josiah Miller, whose name appears on some pewter sundials, was a mold maker in Connecticut circa 1750.
