Fruit Basket Button - Celluloid

This is a very unique button. The fruits were individually molded and then assembled in a yellow transparent celluloid basket. It measures 3/4 wide X 1 1/8 long X 1/2 tall. It has a celluloid shank.

This is believed to be a Marion Weeber creation. She was known for her hand crafted celluloid baskets of fruit buttons in the 1940's.

There is light crazing to the back of the basket which is typical of these types of celluloid buttons. These buttons become very fragile with age. I have kept this button and another one like it in my collection for over 50 years.
