Item details

20 old carved mother of pearl buttons - small buttons, beautifully designed with an intricate pattern. These are old buttons and not modern reproductions and have come from someone who was a 'Pearly King' - a tradition originating in Victorian London where pearly Kings and Queens decorated their clothing with pearl buttons.

I have a range of these small buttons on Etsy from the same source in a variety of designs. The buttons measure fractionally over 1/4 of an inch (0.7 cm) across - they all vary very slightly in size.

The buttons are in good vintage condition with no damage. Lovely old shell buttons.

I will happily combine postage with all additional items being post free - just one postage charge paid.

I am based in London, England and have been selling vintage jewellery and collectables online for over 15 years. I have a passion for vintage items - especially buttons and rare glass beads - and constantly seek out the unusual and interesting.All my items are vintage and inevitably have signs of age related wear which I try to describe honestly and openly.

Please check dimensions in the listing as photos seen on a screen are likely to be larger than in real life.
