How exciting Pamela, and what a fiendish-looking implement those pliers are! Thank you so much for sharing this. :)

Thank so much for sharing this, Pamela. :)
Truly fascinating! I collect glass buttons, I have thousands of them, & I have always admired the effort that went into making these little works of art. It is just wonderful to see one of the tools used in their creation.
How fabulous as well that you have the buttons to match it! :clap:
Many,many thanks! :clap:
I look forward to seeing any more pictures of glass buttons you may have, too.
Marinka.
More glass than class!

Hi Pamela,
I have one photograph of a man using a more sophisticated home set up for making beads. of the same period.
Unlike your pliers, this appears to be some type of foot press with a furnace adjacent. I will post this later or tomorrow.
warmest regards,
Marcus
