WILDFLOWERS Vintage Button Earrings - GOLD
Our eye-catching snowdrop design is now available as a classic earring! Cast in solid recycled bronze from an original button. The buttons in our collection date between 1880-1950s.
With this design, we celebrate Jane Eleanor Datcher, a botanist and the first Black woman to graduate with a degree from Cornell University. Her research involved a species of Anemone flower, a relative of the buttercup. In addition to her scientific contributions she was involved with the Colored Women's League, and 1892-founded club for educated African American women.
