This listing is for a very special set of 4 glass buttons. They are imported West German glass Moonglows as defined by the National Button Society. They were manufactured in the 1930's by Schwanda. They are made of marbled brown glass with layers of clear glass and gold detailing. The layers of clear glass gives these buttons rich depth and dimension. They have domed, faceted centers that give these buttons loads of sparkle. They have a gold edge that has a scalloped design. This edge makes the buttons look like gemstones in a gold setting.

These stunning beauties measure 1/2" (13mm) wide and are in perfect condition. The card is in fabulous condition for its age, but has some minor imperfections. There is some yellowing and very light speckling, but the corners are nice and sharp and there are no folds or creases. This card also has a couple of light brown spots. This set would make a very enviable addition to any button collection. I've seen these buttons sell for five to eight dollars per button. I got a fantastic deal on these, so instead of being greedy, I'm passing the deal on to my beloved customers!
