Item details

Oh SO Deco! Love this jet black 7/8" off center whorl button, looks to be bakelite but will test. (Will post). Love the depth of this button. Would make a stylish & unique brooch. Shank style looks older. Shank button with shank made out of same material. Small scratch as seen in picture. Used macro zoom so surface looks much more smooth and jet in person. Still very pretty & interesting. Most likely 1920s-30s era. Often these jet black buttons were used as mourning buttons. Goth vibe. Listing is for single button shown in photos 1-4. Last photo shows a rare very old twinkle button.
I acquired a stash of old buttons. After researching, many appear to be from the 1920s-50s range but some appear to be much older. Please contact me if you are looking for a certain size, color, style, etc. Have many seashell ones and a variety of colors & some unusually pretty ones for collectors.
I do combine shipping on buttons. If you want, you can convo me with zip and I will reserve and do discount for multiple purchases of buttons or other items if I can ship safely together for a savings. If you don't want to play convo tag, go ahead and check out and I will do best to refund you some $ if they items can be safely shipped together.

Shipping is first class for mainland U.S. and includes tracking. Convo with zip for Alaska or Hawaii.
I can't list automatic discounts on listing chart due to the wide variety of items I offer in my shop.
Questions always welcome and as always, smoke-free from SeaSeaRider.

Consider stopping in my shop SeaSeaRider and viewing my vintage Valentines, vintage Christmas cards & decor. Many sea vignettes incorporating vintage jars/bottles/sea findings, old shells & coral. Come SEA my weathered sea signs (aka my "sea shingles") made all by hand, not digitally, using my own vintage/antique letterpress blocks and original hand-carved stamps. Additionally, I do most of my printing on my smaller creations with true vintage 1930s sign marker stamps used in old general stores for pricing and signs! Great old fonts! I also have old wooden letterpress printers blocks. My specialty is vintage items & original art creations of mine with a SEAshell, ocean, or BEACH-inspired theme. (Hence the name "SeaSeaRider" !) Great stop for the coastal or shell lover! I also have a plethora of "other-inspired" offerings like bird & botanical prints. Lots and lots of vintage seashell bookplates of various sizes and mediums! Please come. (:
