Schiaparelli star buttons


Three striking 1930's Schiaparelli statement buttons in fabulous faceted star shapes, moulded from slightly pearlised coral red marbled galalith, an early form of plastic.

These very large buttons are from a 1937 couture jacket. Elsa Schiaparelli was a design maverick who brought wit and sharp tailoring to all her garments, and her attention to detail meant that special buttons or fastenings were often made for her.

We've found a drawing of the jacket featuring these buttons in the book 'Secrets of the couturiers. Each 5cm across, mint condition. Purchased in Budapest.
