I love how much detail went into a button in the old days. And they are all quite unique. They were not being mass produced back then so you may never see the same button twice.
Often you will see the thread from the previous garment still attached to a vintage button. Evidence of just how prized these buttons were because you wouldn’t dare throw out these gorgeous little works of art with the old clothes they’d been attached to.
Quite often an old dress or shirt would’ve been cut up for quilting squares and of course the button would be saved. Nothing was wasted and because things were so well made, we get to enjoy them and pass them on.
These are in excellent condition and we're passed on to me by my dear friend, Alverda "Babe" Burg over 20 years ago. She gave me her family heirloom button collection filled with buttons that had been collected and passed down from the civil war era to the 60's. I'm so honored to have been the keeper of such a treasure and so happy to be able to share them with you.
