These pretty vintage glass mirrored flower buttons are deco flowers, with a dotted center, surrounded by swirling petals. They were molded with their own shanks and the full backs are coated with gold foiling, so they really shine. They measure 26mm or 1 inch. You will receive 2 of these vintage glass flower buttons. They will come to you loose, I will be removing them from the original card, and out of the original box. If you would like it, there is a full card available in a separate listing in the "vintage buttons" section of the shop, or just ask.

As you can see from the original card and box, these were made in the US Zone of occupied Germany. Germany was occupied by the Allies from 1945 until 1949, so these buttons were made during that time period.

I always recommend caution in exposing old buttons to water. These buttons are as close to pristine as a vintage button can get - you may see some aging of the foil around the edges of some of the buttons, to be expected, given their age, even as they are coming off the original cards to which they were sewn in the 1940's. However, I have no way of knowing what might happen to the foiling if the button is placed in water, so I recommend keeping them as dry as possible.
