I found these in a box of vintage sewing supplies. Any idea of what they are? They measure 1/2" wide, 3/8" tall.

Karen.. found in box of sewing supplies

Those are formal shirt buttons. They are used in the cuffs also.
Many mens vintage tuxedo shirts have no buttons at all. These type buttons were often sold in sets ( 6pc to 12 pcs). Some were very elegant, some very simple and basic.

I have seen some that were made of Gold and precious stones, which came in their own jewelry box. Google 'Vintage mens formal buttons' or tuxedo buttons...perhaps you will find simular ones.

During the height of the mid-century era, (mostly 60s 70s), several designers made miniature Danish Modern furniture,...( Hans Von Klier for Planula, ...Saarinen

Those pieces were rather sought after a few years ago. I read about them in one of my MCM reference books : Buyers Guide - Millers 20th Century Paul Renne .

I have seen several pieces, which were beautifully made....Some pieces were very valuable $$$$ and others $.

Look for markings, save the box if available,..Search for the full scale images of those pieces, for it may give you an idea of provenance.
