They have been reproduced from original 1680-1720 colonial period. These fine reproductions are made in the USA from lead-free pewter called Britainna.

DIY! You can make them yourself. Just take some nail polish of the color you want and paint the button. When the button is just dry, wipe it down with nail polish remover (acetone) to bring out the highlight and allow drying thoroughly.
