73 Year Old Antique Orange Rhinestone Trimmings on Original Card from 1938 and 1939. Beads in Near Mint Condition.
This price is for one card.
These Cards are in Good Condition with some aging discoloration. Button holes go through top right to left and bottom tunnel through right to left. They are sold as a trim; but you could use them as a button by sewing through both top and bottom. Then I suggest you bring thread up through material and wind thread around a few times below button to anchor it and cause it to stand out a little from fabric, not so tightly to it, so it can be used as a button through a button hole. .These are indeed as manufacture marked "Trimmings". Used for embellishment on clothes, embroidery, art work, jewelry, scrapbooking, mementos etc.. or buttons.
They are so dainty you could fit 5 or 6 on the top of a dime. They are 7mm each and require a small needle and thread to sew them on. The card measures 3 3/8" X2 3/8 "

The top of button card reads: “Latest Style Rhinestones for Trimmings". Yeah, Latest Style in 1939! The bottom left of card reads: "Czecho-Slovakia". Wikipedia tells me Czecho-Slovakia was its official name only 1938 to 1939. Because of their age, they are dirty. I did not clean them. When you clean them; some of the stones will have to be reglued. ( I know this from experience.) After all they are 73 years old.
This sale is for only one of the above cards. These are the Rivoli style of rhinestone (as the top and bottom both come to a point). The rhinestones are all set in frosted glass. I also have some purple & green Antique Rhinestone Trimmings listed.
If you are buying these trim to use, and" (not as collecting, displaying or scrapbooking on card) but to sew on, then I suggest you buy them from the other listing I have here on Etsy in my "Supplies" section of imperfect cards & beads as you get more beads for the money.)
