Five matching vintage glass buttons.

Transparent golden honey colored glass pressed into the shape of a teeny tiny butterfly. The wingspan at the top is less than 3/8" (8 mm). Incredible wing pattern and body details on such a small surface. These were accented with bright and metallic paints once but have lost most of those highlights. Some have traces of color spots on the wings, some have dull luster on the bodies and on some, no sign of and paint remains at all. Hard to find amber yellow color.
European made circa 1930. Not new reproductions.

Molded self shank on the back with horizontal hole running the same direction as the body.
Great beadlike accents for jewelry. Small to embellish a cluster of them on a bag or jacket lapel. Decorate a journal cover. Make dainty earrings!

My photos show examples of what's in the bag. You will get a random five similar to what's in the pictures. Chip-free. (I may include an extra 6th one, with a small wing chip until I run out).

I have a few other colors listed in my shop.. If you decide you need more, convo me and I'll put together an assortment for you (at a slight discount for 3 or more groups of five).

From my giant stash of vintage buttons collected over the past 20 years.
