Item details

I can't quite figure what these pretty buttons would have been used for with the button holes on the side. These came out of my Gram's button tin~ I wish she were here to tell me what on earth they're for!
These buttons are a caramel color mother-of-pearl. They are still on their original cards from the 1930's or 40's. One card has broken edges at the bottom. The buttons measure 3/4" across and feature two holes along one side. There are some natural irregularities and one button has a small chip along the edge. There are two buttons with natural imperfections that look as if the piece could possibly shear off~ not sure about that.
There are two cards of 6 buttons each. You will receive both cards with 12 buttons total.
