Edwardian Ladies Buttons Original Card
A great find -- ORIGINAL card with buttons - "Ladies Suit Set". Card has a fabulous graphic of a lady in a circa 1913 suit. Think Downton Abbey or Titanic era!! Buttons appear to be vulcanite - I think they are too early for Bakelite. Color is black. A great find for the button collector!!
Vulcanite was produced by treating natural or India rubber with sulfur, then exposing it to moderate heat. The resultant material was elastic enough to be fashioned into the desired shape while warm, but became hard and durable once cooled. Developed by Charles Goodyear (1800–1860) in 1836 and patented by him in 1844, vulcanization revolutionized the rubber industry. Contemporary passion for innovation fueled interest in Vulcanite jewelry, and vulcanite was an affordable alternative to more expensive jet pieces.

All items priced over $100 are mailed USPS small flat rate with tracking that includes $100 worth of insurance.

If you would like this option, please convo us so we can adjust your invoice.
