Item details

*NOTE: The first picture is the best indication of the condition of the front of the button. All subsequent photos have a minute piece of fuzz on the second leaf from the left.

This is a button produced when the industry was looking for less expensive ways to imitated buttons made of natural materials. Buttons made of mother of pearl, abalone, wood, stone, glass, metals, etc., became to cost prohibitive. Durability also became important for re-use in the depression era. The shape referred to as "realistics" were most popular in the 1930's and 40's.

This wood "look a like" pineapple is made of a hard, matte composite material, The surface has the appearance of being stained or painted and has either been made to look worn on the tips or has been worn through use. There are 4 applied u-shanks or self u-shanks, it looks like there is a seam between the button back and the shank base.

Size: 56 mm. x 34 mm., approximately 2 1/8" x 1 1/8"
Very good vintage condition for its age. The needle marks from sewing onto a garment are visible on the back. The front is not chipped or scratched. The fading is already noted.
