Vintage Buttons

I've got quite the collection of vintage buttons. I try and add them to my projects so I'm always on the lookout for different colors. This time, brown. These have been added to a gadget cozy as the 'tie closure'. Does anyone know how old these might be?

Happy weekend!

Here's hoping your weekend is as much fun as bowl full of buttons!
