LOST WAX-CAST RUSTED BRASS PLAUTUS KEYRING

£16.00 (inc VAT) £13.33 (exc VAT)

Tender's key ring is made from a Plautus face jeans button, hand cast from solid brass in England, using the lost wax method. The button has been rusted, bringing out the copper verdigris from the brass, turning it green. The button is mounted on a stainless steel split keyring, and wrapped in a piece of English-woven calico used to clean the button, leaving it stained with rust.

Titus Maccius Plautus was a Roman playwright (254-184BC) whose work included translating and adapting Greek comedies for a Roman audience. Sometimes considered the first plagiarist, he can also be seen as part of an oral tradition which allowed stories to develop and evolve. This makes a nice parallel with the manner in which jeans and workwear came into their current forms.
