I made a large button score last month and I am remiss in sharing pictures of my favorites. I apologize in advance because I am sure some of these photos overlap.
Plastic buttons with rhinestones.
China, bone and some carved MOP on the right edge.
These are all glass except a colorful wooden one peeking up from the bottom.
Interesting metal buttons, some very pretty MOP and those brown buttons have a scout emblem on them. I usually find green. Does anyone know if they are Boy Scout or Girl Scout? I was thinking maybe Cub Scouts?? I am sure I can find out on line but I haven't made the effort yet.
Interesting plastic buttons.
The two in the upper left are both tight tops. There are several uniform buttons in this picture and I have never seen ones like that discus thrower or the lighthouse.
Love that big Lucite button!
As always, click the pictures bigger to get a better look.
The mauve one with the white wash are among my favorites. There is a rather plain little Bakelite in the lower left corner but I will take Bakelite in any form!
A couple neat deco-style in this lot. My Granddaughter's little cousin picked up one of the red ones and declared it a Target button - lol!
Pierced is always good.
This was a very large lot and took quite a while to clean and wash and my stash for Etsy is well replenished! Now, seriously, I am going to get busy getting my work bench cleared off. I mean it this time. Here I go...
