This late 1800’s large picture button was originally titled “Cupid at the Fountain”. I have left the shank intact to preserve its’ collectibility. I have stacked a smaller antique button above it to give it even more interest. Wearable History!
So much to love about this early 1800’s button! The geometric simple star with border design is so modern for a button so old. The wide no pinch band is comfortable & adjustable. Historically chic! Please note: this button is over 200 years old and retains some character tarnish. See pictures.
So much to love about this late 1800’s button! The stylized design of Grain….wheat? Corn? The button has a silver cast with just a hint of subtle gold showing through. The wide no pinch band is comfortable & adjustable. Historically chic!
For my naturalists out there… These are Vegetable Ivory button from the 1800's-1920's. They were made from the Tagua Nut from South America between 1885- 1920. (although in 1990's they moved to restart the veg.-ivory button trade.) They are subtle, yet make a beautiful and interesting piece of jewelry!

Vintage Pearl buttons are just stunning. They are chameleons, changing hues to coordinate with whatever color you are wearing! This is a combination of two separate Pearl buttons that I stacked. They each have a yellow tone, but again, they will go with everything!

This is a button, most likely post 1920’s, that is made to look like an expensive jeweled button on Bakelite. I believe it is all plastic, celluloid and some type of metal trim. Nonetheless, it is striking and large and would finish off a textile product with much drama!
This button is considered a Theatre button and was popular in the late 1800’s. The figures on this button were representations of characters from the Early professional theatre called Commedia dell’arte also called Italian Comedy, since it originated in Italy. It was popular entertainment between the 16th & 18th century.
