Adorable set of 6 Pearl (possibly Abalone) buttons hand sewn onto a card. 3 buttons are and painted with fish and 3 with sail boats. The card reads:

As I know some of your hobbies are fishing and boating I hope my buttons may find a place on one of your spots blouses.

Inside the card has a hand drawing of Holly and is signed Alma.

Very sweet folk art buttons, likely painted by a Mother / Grandmother.

Overall lovely as-found condition. There is a small scratch in the paint on one of the fishies and maybe a little smudging on the boat just below it. Would not be noticeable if worn.

Perfect as-found, as part of your sewing notion collection, or the perfect gift for a friend!
