This is some of the inventory from my antique shop I closed namy years ago. It seems I have an endless supply of things to list. Buttons had been my passion. I have glass, jet, celluloid, Bakelite, bone, shoe buttons, rhinestone and 1950’s plastic buttons of all colors. I collected buttons for years and now I’m ready to sell them. These are great for any seamstress or one that does vintage clothing refreshing, doll clothes makers, steampunk jewelry making, or any craft project.
I was at an Antique show in Centerville, Michigan where I was selling some of my sewing goodies. A man came up and told me that the next day they were having an estate sale of his Mother's items. The sale would be in Constantine, Michigan. He said she had died and she had been a seamstress and did repairs on vintage clothing for years. I was shocked at the amount of buttons, buckles, thread on wooden spools, button hooks, thimbles and much more. I bought these buttons along with several hundred more buttons.
This listing is for 2 (a Pair) Large antique buttons. These are from the Victorian era to the early 1900’s. I have 3 sets of these available if you need 6 just click the small 3 available to get them all. They are made of bone and have 2 holes. They are carved with a dotted design. These each measure 1 3/16” across. I show a photo of two in my hand so you get an idea of the actual size. The last photo shows all six together. If you need a certain size or color of button for a craft project, just let me know and I will check to see if I have it and then list them for you. I keep buttons listed all the time so check them out in my other listings.
Check out my other Etsy stores for great gifts: I will ship items together even if they are from my different stores. Just let me know before you pay so I can adjust the charges to save you money on shipping cost.
