Description

I have bought and sold buttons for 32 years. In that time, I have seen very few of this kind of button. About 2 years ago, I purchased a collection and there was a card of 42 different designs. That cards was so pretty. I have sold many of them at shows. They are not easy to find - at least that has been my experience.

This listing is for your CHOICE of ONE (1) button. There are ELEVEN (11) different designs available - 1 of each. I have assigned a number to each button and have included a close-up of each with a brief description.

When buying, please order the quantity you want. In the Add a Note window, bottom left of the order screen OR in a Conversation, please tell me which number(s) you want. I will make sure you get the one(s) you want.

These are all cut steel designs that are inset into a black glass button base. When manufactured, the design of the cut steels was cut into the glass, so the cut steels sit down in the glass. Incredible how perfectly they fit.

These are all NBS small buttons, measuring between 1/2" and 9/16". They each have a loop shank on the back.

These are all in very good, antique condition. Please be sure to view all the pictures as they are a big part of my description. The close-ups show things not easily seen with the bare eye.
I see no flaws to mention.

Any one or all of these would make a wonderful addition to any button collection. As I said, in 32 years of buying and selling buttons, I have seen very few of these. There are far more cut steels on pearl than these black glass and cut steel buttons. Don't miss the opportunity to add a few to your collection.

Combined shipping is available.
