What a fantastic idea for your Titanic Dinner Party or special occasion. Now you can wear the real thing; the authentic brass buttons the officers on Titanic wore. Both sizes for your cuffs and jacket included, just what is needed to make a stand out nautical fashion statement. The regulation size White Star Line button was made to the exacting standards required by a company known for quality metal buttons that are made for the US armed forces, airlines, steamship companies including the White Star Line.
A little known fact, outside of maritime historians, is that companies in America manufactured for the prestigious White Star Line. When J. Pierpont Morgan’s International Mercantile Marine Company added the White Star Line to its list of shipping companies in 1902, American businesses as well as their British counterparts were sought in order to have suppliers on both sides of the Atlantic. Silver-plated utensils and tableware were produced by Reed & Barton and Gorham; the Waterbury Button Company, a city known for its fine brassware, made the familiar White Star logo button for officers’ uniforms. Since 1812, the Waterbury Button Company has crafted the world’s most popular metal buttons. When Ulysses S. Grant met General Robert E. Lee at Appomatox Courthouse, both men wore them on their chests. Make your own history and choose this attractive Blazer Set of 10 buttons cast in brass in premium gold finish. The set comes in a warm burgundy velvet gift box.
