Hi Fellow Button Lovers!
Just thought I'd make a post on some interesting buttons in my personal collection as well as in my shoppe Flotsam & Jetsam ...
The orange c. 1940 buttons are a real treasure. A dear friend makes these reproduction cards for me complete with gold foil backing. I think the foil is a special touch and adds a nice professional look to the card.
The second picture features some buttons which were a recent giveaway at a baby shower I hosted! The bowling button is by far one of my favorites and the dumb bell early plastic ones are great too. I did test these for bakelite but unfortunately they did not make the cut. The contrast between the black and white colored buttons make them fabulous design pieces, so representational of a streamlined time circa 1920/1940.
I hope you enjoyed my little post- Hopefully I'll take some good shots of the older, Victorian buttons I collect! Until then, happy button hunting! Stacey Newton www.tinselandtreasure.blogspot.com
