Special Buttons For Sale - Circa 1920"s

Antique Mother of Pearl Buttons for Sale.
Circa 1920's

I am posting things on my Blog that I have been finding as I'm cleaning up and opening boxes.

These are treasures…I didn't know I had them (except the few in my personal..NOT FOR SALE drawer).

This is what I have.  They were hand sewn on a card. 
 Twenty Four on a card.  Two Dozen.

They are 1/4" Mother of Pearl Shanks. 

My Button Man, who is no longer living, was wonderful. He loved Buttons and could talk about them forever.  His Grandfather started the business.  He was in his 80's when he was telling me his stories.

He told me he remembered his mother sitting at the kitchen table when he was a boy, sewing these buttons onto the cards.

Years ago he sent me 300 card.  This is what is left.

Each card sells for $15.00 on my Web Site.
