Small sized vintage bone underwear buttons.

Twenty buttons from as early as the civil war era. These are the kind that you saw in the movies holding the flap shut on the old timer cowpoke's red longjohns.
Most are 1/2" Some may be smaller and some are 9/16". None bigger. (12-14 mm). All have four sew-thru holes. Good used condition with no chips. No guarantee of assembling matching sets from these but many are similar. Variety of Vintages: This type of button was made from the late 1800's thru 1950.
Beautiful natural embellishments for many many projects. Great shabby chic flavor and proper for re-enactment costume.

This is my stock photo for this offer. I will continue to offer these groups until my bag is empty. You will recieve a random selection with no less quality than the ones pictured. Some backs may be rough and some have a visible grain, as is the nature of a natural material, but none will be damaged. Some will be a bit dirty but not filthy. They will look just like these. A few will have old threads remaining.

I have been stockpiling these forEVER. Collected from button tins that have passed thru my hands in the last 20 years. I have way more than I can ever use.
If you want more, I am convo friendly. :-) Reserved listing requests welcome.
