You will receive a 14 buttons with your order. Ten buttons will be the black mother of pearl and 4 will be the 7/16" brown buttons as shown in the picture, which are not mother of pearl. Substitutions will have an additional charge of $1.00
It is uncertain who manufactured these buttons, but they were distributed by Griess, Pfleger and Company from Cincinnati, Ohio. The diameter of these buttons is approximately 5/16". They are from the Victorian (1880 - 1900) Era and have a metal shank.
I am not certain of the color names but this one looks black. See pictures.
