Pretty brass buttons fly from the waistcoat of Bilbo Baggins when he must
squeeze through a
crack to escape the clutches of Gollum. But as Bilbo will prove to his doubting Dwarf companions, there is much more to this Hobbit than buttons and pocket-handkerchiefs.
Each button is manufactured in Wellington, New Zealand – spincast from 99%
pure zinc and
electroplated in an antique brass finish and then buffed and lacquered.
