This auction is for a mixed lot of 58 wonderful glass buttons. Included are lots of vintage moonglows; some great opaque glass buttons with painted and gilt accents; and lots of other types. There are antique, vintage and some newer buttons--but not brand new. Most are self-shank but there are a few other types as shown in the second photo. The largest button measures approximately 11/16", the smallest 3/8". All of the buttons are in excellent condition.
Some of the highlights included: a white glass piecrust button with mottled green inset and bird-cage self shank; four blue cut-and-pierced flower buttons with scalloped edges and gilt; a white glass linen-finish button with blue stripes and rosette shank; a sweet little white glass button of a face wearing a hat (leprechaun?); some wonderful white glass design-under-glass geometrics; and a pair of delicate navy-blue flowers. Please feel free to contact me with questions or offers. Photo may not be to scale.
I have thousands of buttons to list. I bought an entire collection from an estate and am slowly working may way through it. I will be listing a huge variety of types and eras--from antique to modern. I have been trying to educate myself along the way by checking auctions and studying the reference books which were included with the lot. Please feel free to educate me
