Gorgeous antique mother-of-pearl shell buttons in a range of sizes from a tiny 5mm (3/16") diameter to a nicely chunky 20mm (13/16").
Used in French dressmaking for centuries, some of these buttons may even date from the 18th Century, as they have come from a variety of old collections. The most petite of the buttons would have been used for lingerie, but they would add a lovely touch of faded glamour to any modern dressmaking or scrapbooking project.
You will receive a selection of 30 different antique mother of pearl buttons in a range of sizes. Quantities of each size are selected at random and cannot be guaranteed. Should you require your set to contain buttons of a particular size, please let me know prior to ordering and I will do my best to match as many as possible for you. Do use the drop-down menu above right to choose additional sets of 30 if required.
Please note, these are old, worn buttons: please do not expect them to be as new! Many of them are very ancient indeed and hold story in their gently timeworn imperfections.
All items ship worldwide from France.
