These beautiful vintage rhinestone buttons are on their original cards and are in excellent condition. They are almost 3/4 inch in diameter, have self shanks and a central rhinestone, still sparkly after all these decades. They are are beveled around the edges and faceted on both the top and back sides of the button, around the edge. This adds to their overall sparkle. The top of the button has a slight frosted finish around the rhinestone, which further enhances the sparkle of the stone. There are 4 buttons on each card and the cards are in excellent condition, with nice graphics. These buttons were made in occupied Austria. They are in such good condition because the button cards are coming out of their original box, shown in the last photo. The cards are layered in the box between sheets of tissue, where they have sat for at least 55 years. You will receive 1 card with 4 buttons.

Here's the history: Austria was occupied by the Allies from 1945 to 1955, with the last Allied troops leaving in October 1955. The country was divided into 4 zones, the US Zone including Salzburg and most of Upper Austria. Therefore, these buttons were made in that region, some time between 1945 and 1955.
