For sale is this rare set of three Guild of Handicraft silver buttons. Each button is set with classic Guild blue enamel. The buttons are in excellent condition.
The buttons are not hallmarked but come in an original Chipping Campden box, also referencing “Works: Essex House”. I believe this must date the buttons to around 1901, when the Guild transitioned from the East End (Essex house) to the Cotswolds (Chipping Campden).
Maker: Guild of Handicraft
Date: c. 1901
