These button are so beautiful. I have enlarged them to show detail, so it is even more beautiful in person, as here, you can see every "pore". The buttons, measuring 1" are antique. They dates from the Victorian era, probably vintage 1880. The front of one button is a lovely sheet of celluloid. Poking through the mottled sheet of celluloid is a very cool design made up of red tinted metal. The other has a cutout which reveals fabric underneath.

These buttons should not be washed. Victorians removed buttons before laundering, as can be many parts to a buttons like this, and water can get trapped inside. It's well worth the effort if you are going to use it on a wearable item. It would be wonderful in jewelry, assemblage, as a handbag clasp, etc.

I recently purchased new button stock, and have a nice selection of great vintage buttons in many materials. Please let me know if you are looking for a particular color or style. I might be able to help!

I sometimes use recycled shipping materials in good condition. (Your nicely packed buttons are my first priority.) Let me know if this is a problem for you.
