Sorted Buttons

The center dish holds the genuine MOP buttons. The faux MOP surround.

I bought and sold a few buttons on Ebay years ago. I kept some of them.
Lots of them went into making one jangly bracelet for mom.
These also contain buttons from Aunt Korrene.
The leather ones are from her. Someday I will sew them onto something special.

My favorite button is in the middle. It's a thin piece of hard pressed metal with a loop shank.
I think the domes on top used to be faceted before they were corroded.
I also really love the silvery rose twig buttons.
