    I purchased a bag of buttons and found these bakelite buttons. There were two more buttons, but not as 'fun' as the two characters above the circle buttons.

      These are wonderful buttons raven, the faces appear to be from king and queen chess pieces, very original!

      Wonderful! How big are they please? It could be that the chess/playing card buttons were for late 1930's-40's fitted jackets. They remind me of Surrealistic style of that time including Schiaparelli designs. Very fun.

      Thanks Newfld, Valentino, Time Traveller, Hel1, Fortapache, and Vetraio for the love. Valentino they measure about 1" x 1".
