Austrian Button Card For Sale - Fancy

This Button Card is from Circa 1914.
They are hand sewn onto this card.
Each card has 1 Gross of Buttons.  That is 12 Dozen Buttons, which is 144 individual Buttons!

On the back of the card you can see how they were stamped "Made in Austria".

My Button Man would tell me how they were made just prior to WW1 and a bit about the geography of the countries before boundries were shifted after the war.

I think he told me that his Grandfather who started the Button Business came from that area of Europe.

These buttons have pretty carvings.  They measure 3/8" each.

These are great for Collectors, Button Lovers or people who want a quality button with a past!
