Tiny Olive Green and Off White Pillow Top Button Set - Rounded Square - Celluloid - Ten Button Set - Unique Shape
Well . . . the shape of these little buttons is a little hard to describe. Rounded Squares? Squished Pillows? I found something similar on an antique button site called 'pillow top' buttons. I am not sure of the best adjectives for them, but they sure are cute.
The set consists of 10 little buttons. They measure about 8 mm across (not quite 3/8 of an inch). They are kind of puffed up with a rounded top. They are two toned. The tops are an olive green. The bottom part is a light beige or off white. When you look closely at the light portions, they have a little stripe in them, almost like a wood grain. They are in nice condition with no cracks or issues. You may want to give a few a gentle cleaning.
I confess that identifying button materials and their age baffles me at times. I hunted and hunted and then found their twins!! I am pretty confident they are celluloid, dating them from the 1900's through the 1920's, possibly as late as the 1940's They are definitely a fun, unique and slightly whimsical set of buttons. Enjoy!
Please feel free to contact me with whatever questions you may have! Thanks.
****** I am going to be listing several lots of buttons. If you are interested in multiples, please message me and I can adjust the shipping. Etsy's shipping calculator often over estimates shipping on purchases with multiple light weight items. I am confident that I can put a lot of buttons in the same box for an affordable shipping rate! Thanks ******
I am gradually working to convert my shop to calculated shipping. This should provide you with accurate shipping costs and the ability to easily choose from many types of shipping methods. During this transition, if there is any confusion on shipping, just contact me. I will ALWAYS refund any significant shipping overages, no matter how it was calculated.
**** Note about Media Mail There seems to be a bug in Etsy's shipping calculator in regards to media mail. Please do not select media unless ALL items in your order can ship with that method. Otherwise there may be significant delays in your purchase.
Items will normally ship within 2 business days. Sometimes I even get them out the same day!
***** Customs and import taxes Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I can not be responsible for delays due to customs.
***** Oh, and I use recycled packaging materials whenever possible and lots and lots of bubble wrap! :) I want all my treasures to arrive safe and sound so I never skimp on bubble wrap or sturdy boxes.
