Vintage set of six Satsuma flower ceramic buttons- they are still attached to what I believe to be the original card. Very pretty. Sold as a set.
A bit of history: Satsuma buttons are a type of ceramic button based on Satsuma ware, a traditional ceramic craft of Kagoshima (whose western half was once called Satsuma Province).
In good vintage condition- some of the colors on the buttons have faded & some signs of wear the back of the card. Please ask for additional pictures.
Measurements: a little bit under 0.6 inches in diameter
Please note that due to lighting effects, monitor's brightness, contrast and other settings, there might be some slight differences in the color tone/shade of the web site's photo and the actual item.
Since this item is vintage, it is not unusual to have some flaws or imperfections. I do my best to describe and attach pictures of any flaws I find, but if you have any questions or want additional pictures, please convo me. Sometimes vintage items need cleaning.
Starting 2016, if you buy two or more items from my store, the shipping is FREE for domestic addresses.
For International Shipping, I only claims responsibility up to the point of dropping the items off (I ship internationally via USPS International First Class). If you wish to use Priority or Express shipping which provides tracking options, please let me know before buying.
I will ship items within 5 days of receiving payment.
All purchases with a United States destination will be shipped via USPS First Class. Please let me know if you would like to add shipping confirmation or insurance. Insurance costs extra.
For International buyers, all packages are shipped by First Class International which does not include insurance or a tracking number. This keeps the cost down.
Please let me know if you would like Priority, Express, insurance, confirmation or any other change, and I will do my best to accommodate.
Please note that all taxes, duties and customs fees associated with international shipping are the responsibility of the buyer.
The USPS gives 7-10 business days as the estimated arrival time for international shipping. Depending on your location, cost may vary from listed price in the shipping quotes and delivery time will vary by country.
Lost in Transit: If an item has a break in tracking, this is not the fault of the shop owner and shop only claims responsibility up to the point of dropping item off for shipping.
Please be aware that many foreign countries charge a customs fee. That fee is not included in your purchase price and shipping fee. It is your responsibility to know your countries customs laws and to pay any fees associated with your purchase.
It is unlawful to falsify customs forms! Please do not ask me to break the law, I will not do it.
I know that shipping fees are expensive, but that is what the United States Post Office charges.
Payment is due at the time of purchase. If you need more time please contact me before you commit to buy.
If you change your mind, you have 24 hrs to request a refund as long as item has not been shipped. I do retain 10% of purchase for my time and efforts plus Etsy and Paypal fees.
After 3 days of non-payment the sale is canceled, reported, and the item is re-listed.
Non-payment affects everyone! Please be considerate.
If you are interested in an item but wish to pay a few days later, I am happy reserve an item for you. This means in the title of the listing I add the words, Reserved for (your name here.) This prevents another person from buying an item that has been set aside for you.
If you wish to put an item on reserve - Just send me a message letting me know you want to reserve the item with a date for when you want to buy it. I am happy to hold an item for 3 days.
I know (too well !) that it can be tough getting those funds together to purchase that special item. The layaway system gives you 60 days to pay off items from over $100. You can make one payment per month or more if you want to pay it off earlier.
If you decide not to go through with the purchase after making a payment, you will receive a refund less 10% to cover any PayPal or Etsy fees.
Please note that if you request that an item be placed on layaway for you and do not make the first payment within 7 days I reserve the right to place the item back on the site without notice. Layaway means you have an extended time to purchase the item-it does not mean that I will hold the item for you for a month until you make the first payment.

Additional return information
Please remember that almost all of these pieces are vintage (at least 20 years old) and have been worn in the past. Imperfections are inevitable due to their age, but they also add to the rich history of the piece. I try to state the condition of each piece as best as I can discern. I try to take several close-up and clear pictures for you to view. You are encouraged to study them to make your own determination before purchasing. I can take additional photos if they are needed. So, when in doubt, please ask any questions you may have, whether about a listing description or a photo, before making your purchase. My goal is to make you a happy customer! However, since my items are vintage and sold as-is, there will be no returns, exchanges or refunds.
If you encounter an unforeseen problem with an item severely damaged in delivery or if I have made an extreme error in my description, please email with your concerns. I will make our best efforts to work with you.
Thank you !
