A few weeks ago I attended the National Button Society's NY state show that, for some reason, is held right here in my little upstate NY town every year. Lucky me! Those who have followed this blog long enough are well aware of my obsession with antique buttons (or antique anything, for that matter). I look at them as miniature works of art, perfect sculptures, that represent the aesthetic flavor of a particular era. And nothing thrills me more than to see these designs reinterpreted in porcelain; preserved for new generations to enjoy and cherish.
