My daughter spent a big chunk of a month's pay to buy me the Big Book of Buttons. I finally have the opportunity to list some of a collection I have been able to identify using this great resource. It's amazing how much buttons resemble costume jewelry. They reflect the fashions of the day. If you like old costume jewelry, think of the possibilities buttons can add.

This button was made during the mid to late 19th century. It is an example of dyed, plastic horn molded with a classic head in relief. Raised dots form the border. In very good condition. Measures 1" across. On page 12 of the BBB.
