These amazing over-sized Bakelite buttons are part of an inventory we acquired from a New York Designer in the 1980's. They are Vintage and very Rare.
The color scheme is a dark Green layered over a Black Base, The button is square with a fluted sculpted edge for a real Art Deco feel...They are in excellent condition with minor surface imperfections due to their age.In reality they look better than in the photos.
The back has a double loop shank for attachment as a button. These could also be the start of an incredible piece of Art Jewelry....a Brooch, pendant, or Hat Pin.....Creative minds will surely find a great use for these Vintage pieces.Of course on a coat they would be Divine....!!!!
The buttons measure approx 1 and 3/4 squared and are thick..not quite a 1/2 inch.They have been tested for authenticity with Simichrome and have tested positive for Bakelite.
