Beautiful vintage set of 6 carved mother of pearl shell buttons tinted or dyed a soft gray. Fabulous MOP luster. Buttons measure approximately 5/8" diameter and are two hole sew through. Sewing holes are slightly recessed which is excellent for reducing thread wear. Excellent vintage condition.

These buttons are from a recent auction purchase of new old stock (NOS) from the American Pearl Button Company in Washington, Iowa. They made MOP pearl shell buttons from 1908 to 1965. I have several colors of these gorgeous dyed mother of pearl buttons: pale pink, raspberry red, light blue, pale green, yellow and gray. There are numerous sizes in each color so please check my other items for matching buttons in different styles and sizes. Some of these shell buttons are carved and some are not. This is a rare opportunity to coordinate your buttons on projects that require several different sizes of buttons. Keep in mind, quantities are limited!!

Please use the photos and description to help with your decisions so you can have an enjoyable shopping experience with me.
