Every now and again, I find buttons like these. Buttons that are so gorgeous, they just blow my mind!

This set of 12 vintage buttons are made of red plastic. The pictures failed to capture how stunning the color is. They are a rich, deep, glittering, ruby red that looks more like fine glass than plastic. They remind me of Dorothy's ruby slippers. They have a metallic shimmer that's like red nail polish poured straight from the bottle. They are amazingly dimensional. They have a metallic layer on the back and a transparent layer on the tops. These layers give the buttons extraordinary depth and sparkle. They are so glossy, they look wet. They are so pearly, they almost glow. I had a tough time taking pictures of them. They grab so much light, they looked like orange blobs in my first set of photos. These photos were as close as I could get. Trust me, you'll love them so much more when you see them in person.

They have sort of a rounded-off square shape and concave centers. They are fairly tiny buttons, measuring in at 3/8" (10mm) wide. They are in perfect condition and have never been used.

I have more of these stunning buttons if you need them. The last time I had something like this in my shop, I sold out of them very fast. They may not last long!
