These vintage button cards were used by salesman in the 1950's.

There are 5 half cards of various styles and colors of buttons. No two halves go together. Four are from the B. Bllumenthal & Co and one from La Mode. There are 37 buttons total with 17 missing.

Two the B. Blumenthal cards have pearlized buttons. Two of the cards are shiny plastic and one is matte plastic. They are all plastic and range in size from 1/2" (1.3 cm) to 1" (2.5 cm).

The pearlized buttons are in excellent condition. The matte & shiny buttons have a few scuffs and marks on them.

The cards are made of cardboard and measure about 5" x 6 1/4" tall. The buttons are sewn onto the cards with white string and they are taped on the backs. There is considerable discoloration on the taped areas on the backs.

The cards have some wrinkles and worn edges, some tearing around the holes where the missing buttons would be, and some hand written stock numbers in black ink.

These are great to use in shadow boxes as is or use the buttons!
