    These are Vintage Buttons from 1900 to 1940's era, the materals used then are no longer used in button production, for example, in the first picture (browns), bakelite, casein & celluloid were used, in 2nd picture, glass, rhinestone & shell or mop(mother of pearl), all of these are very collectible and a great way to remember our history.

      I love to keep old buttons on hand! They sometimes add that special little touch you need in projects.

      Button owners and collectors, keep metal buttons separate from celluloid buttons.
      The metal buttons will cause the celluloid to degrade and fall apart.
