... as Mike and Frank would say! These buttons were especially dirty with a lot of broken buttons and crumbled sick buttons. I had to work hard at the rescue, sometimes with a toothbrush, but there were treasures to be had and they cleaned up pretty nice.
This is what I started with. No complaints on the eBay seller - this is just the way I like to get them. A real button box.
Love, love those three glass balls. They remind me of the claw-feet on vintage furniture.
An amazing art-deco style green Lucite button with a black top. I am not really sure if this is Lucite or not. Does anyone know if there was a transparent plastic earlier than Lucite?
I find Scout buttons from time to time but they are always plastic. These are the first metal ones I have found.
Pretty MOP and those three red plastic buttons are a design I haven't seen before. They are ball-shaped sew-through with two holes visible from the top and bottom.
I love the thrill of the hunt and clearly don't mind kissing a few frogs!
