We do not know very much about antique buttons but these are charming and seem to be of a good quality. Like most items in BrensAttic, this was purchased at a reputable antique dealer in the Bay area and carefully stored for the past 20 years. This item is in good vintage condition.
We are not antique experts, but rather antique enthusiasts. We carefully research the history and authenticity of each item we sell from BrensAttic, but when possible, we rely heavily on the assessment of the antique dealer who sold the piece to Bren. We do not test metals. We try to set competitive prices based on what Bren paid for the item 20 years ago, and current market prices.
