These gorgeous vintage flower buttons are made of luminous ivory mother of pearl and are vintage Japanese. Made about 60 years ago, they are carved in a flower pattern with 2 holes. They are slightly cupped - my thumb fits comfortably in the button. They measure 3/4 inch in diameter, or about 19mm. There is some variation from button to button in terms of the carving, the edges and the shape of the button. The carving can vary in depth and the edges can be imprecise, adding to the vintage appeal and giving these buttons a real hand crafted look and feel. There is some roughness to the back of some of the buttons. These are new old stock (nos), never used. You will receive 6 beautiful vintage flower buttons.

If you like mother of pearl, you will find more buttons in the "vintage buttons" section of the shop, and other types of mother of pearl, such as sequins, discs and cabs in the "vintage mother of pearl" section of the shop.
