Vintage visions!

These gorgeous vintage buttons are just a sampling of my latest finds. Dyed mother of Pearl, molded plastics, etc. If you collect buttons, be sure to let antique dealers know about it. Leave your name and number, and check back with them. I had left my name and number at an antique mall in the area, and normally have never had any success of finding anything there, but got a phone call from the owner, and there was a huge bunch of amazing buttons. The buttons shown are from the 1920’s-1950’s.

Button Storage

DSCN3231

Button storage . . . very important. The buttons I’m showing in this post were NOT stored properly. I picked up a batch of buttons at a flea market about 6 months ago that were stored in an old plastic candy container with a tight lid. I’m sure the lid hadn’t been opened in – well – could have been years.

I’m just showing a few of the ruined buttons in the container. The white button on the upper left of the heart, has had a button melt into it, and can’t be cleaned; the red button under it crumbled and broke from being in a hot, tightly covered container; the orange button, as you can see, had another button melt into it, and there isn’t anything that can be done about that; the beautiful, or what would have been beautiful grey Mother of pearl button has had a white “chalky” substance melt on it, and can’t be washed or scraped off; and the pretty golden yellow vintage plastic button melted and is almost an oval shape now; and finally, the clear, vintage acrylic button has also had a button melt on it, and the dirty looking brown substance, can’t be cleaned off.

For me, it doesn’t matter if I store buttons in containers with closed off lids, because I open those containers all the time. But, if they are going to sit for years, without the lid being opened, put them in open containers that allow your buttons to breathe. And, please don’t store them in a hot place, that isn’t ventilated.

Remember, these buttons are made of different materials – plastic, acrylic, shell, wood, metal, etc., and they will all “mesh” together if not properly stored.

Whistles!

I wanted to share a very special button with you. This is what’s known as a “Whistle” button. They come in various sizes, shapes, colors. This one is a vintage paisley design, and I couldn’t help but share it with you.

In the first picture, I asked my husband to hold it, so you can see – this side of the button is the side with only ONE HOLE, and he held it to the light, and you can faintly make out that it really has two holes on the other side. This is a true WHISLE BUTTON. Then, you can see the other side has TWO WHOLES. Plain as day. When you look straight through . . .  you should be able to see a small portion of the two holes through the top hole.

This looks like it is a wooden button, but at closer examination, it is Celluloid. Very unique.

1930’s Pin!

This amazing pin is one I just found in a grouping of Vintage/Antique buttons recently, and did some research, and it is a beautiful “Faux Coral Molded Celluloid with tiny pearls” pin. It is from the 1930’s era. Very unique!
