These beautiful old nailheads (also referred to as “sew-ons”) are truly spectacular! The finish is a stunning metallic silver, which has a moderate patina that adds shades of hematite.
Sew-ons were extremely popular with the garment industry from the turn of the century on through the 1940’s. Most were made in Germany and Czechoslovakia. This particular style, with a round facetted top and flat back, is often referred to as a “nailhead” – which is exactly what they look like when sewn down.
