Czech Glass Buttons

How are these beautiful Czech glass buttons made? First off, these buttons are new, but are made using the same techniques and the same equipment that have been using for a hundred years!  They are made using molds where the glass is pressed into the mold to make the shape and design.  Using glass canes, the glass is heated up over a fire and inserted into the mold.  When completed, the molded button is removed and handpainted by an artisan worker, and then coated with a protecting glaze and fired in a kiln.  Because each one is handpainted, no two buttons are exactly alike!
