You are viewing a set of six huge, hand-carved buttons in the shape of what appears to be a hippo. Each measures approx. 2.25" wide x 1.25" high x 1/8" thick. Although the sizes and shapes are consistent, the design and color of each is slightly different. Possibly, they're made of horn or bone, but interestingly, when tapped against each other, they "clink" a bit - almost like petrified wood. Also, the backs of some have a subtle woodgrained texture. Each button has 7 holes. We poked toothpicks into them so you can see the locations: two on the top, one on each leg, and one in the eye. We also show one button which has been beaded - just to give you an idea how they could be used to make dangly pins!

See our other listings for a second set of these buttons where the hippos are facing left instead of right.
