Over the next several months I will be listing both my mother and grandmother's button collection. The buttons I'm currently listing are from my grandmother's collection. She began collecting in the 1930's and passed away four years ago at 103.
The collections encompass all periods, styles and materials. Although buttons are completely foreign to me, I've kindly received guidance on them and have tried to educate myself regarding them. However, I'm sure I will make plenty of mistakes, both in identification and pricing. If you should see a glaring error, please write and tell me. I want to do my best to properly represent everything and I want everyone who purchases one to be happy.
PLEASE NOTE: I have scanned all the buttons as a group and then cropped each one individually. So as to show as much detail as possible, I've bumped up the contrast on the images. Because of this. some, but not all, of the colors may be slightly "heightened". However, I suspect anyone looking at these will be already familiar with how they look "in person" and will know what to expect.
Be sure to check out my other sales as I will probably list buttons in a way you might not be searching.
I combine shipping - wait for me to send you an invoice before paying.
