This listing is for six clear red cut glass buttons from the Czech Republic. These vintage shank style buttons have a beautiful floral design and measure 18mm(nearly 3/4").
Buy 5 or more button collections and receive a bonus 6 button card (you can request a color but wouldn’t you rather be surprised?) You also save on shipping when you buy more than one.
First let me say that I am not an “official” vintage button collector, though I have amassed quite a vintage button collection (most from my mother). I started concentrating on vintage buttons (that’s 20 years old+ by Etsy standards) for my own hand knit sweaters where I tend to like using mis-matched buttons and most of the offerings in this shop will be from my mis-matched collections. I offer a variety of sizes and materials including bakelite/celluloid/earlyplastic, wood, glass and metal. A few “modern” buttons may slip in here and there and I will use them if they achieve the desired effect. You can use these collections in your sewing, knitting or other projects or to personalize/customize commercially made garments (one of my fav uses).
Each button has been gently cleaned in warm, soapy water and a soft toothbrush has been applied when needed. I have then sorted and collated the buttons into collections that are often mis-matched in design but similarly sized. I stitch the buttons to a card, which is not only a nice presentation but also makes them ship securely and insures that the shanks or holes are not split. Please scroll through all of the photos in each listing as the latter ones will be detailed close ups. I’m afraid that because of the effort put in to organizing the cards I cannot make substitutions. Buttons are shipped in a rigid cardboard sleeve/or padded envelope to minimize (hopefully eliminate) damage in transit.
