two 1920's/30's fabric buttons with orange glass cabochons and paste stones, large, tighttops, black fabric, art deco , collectible, sewing
Fresh from some splendid outfit from the 1920's/30's, these fabulous fabric buttons are ready to enhance a fabulous new creation, or add drama to something that just needs freshening up.
Take off the old buttons on a jacket, and put these on...and voila, a new jacket.
They are a great size: 2.25 by 1.5 inches. So they can be used on handmade sweaters, bags, great for mixed media projects and jewelry crafting. Earrings/ brooches?
They are also a great addition to a collection.
The fabric, which I think is a heavy weave silk, is in perfect condition, all the rhinestones are intact and the cabochons have just enough wear to show they really are vintage. Nice.
These could actually be older, possibly from the 1890's and up, but I don't want to go out on a limb.
What goes around, comes around.
Love of quality and beauty from the past is happiness.
