Old Buttons

Don't you just love old buttons!  I was lucky enough to find this old tin yesterday at a garage sale.  It was hiding away in the bottom of a box.  I find it really exciting coming home & checking out what treasures there are, sort of like going through Nana's old buttons. 

There were a few interesting ones in the tin, especially the larger one.  It measures 6.5 cm & has like a mother of pearl shell inlay.  Sort of looks art deco'ish to me.  Any ideas??  I'll have to check my button book for this one.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.  It's stopped raining here & has turned out to be a lovely sunny day!

  1. Joolz, I love your buttons, I have one the same as the bottom middle one. Plus some very old ones. My mind goes to who wore it and on what?
    Lots of unanswered questions.
