Dark Olive vintage floral glass buttons

Dark Olive vintage floral glass buttons

24 dark khaki/brown vintage glass shanks on original card.
Hand painted raised flowers in perfect condition. 

The button cards listed here were part stock of an old Copenhagen haberdashery that closed sometime around the 1940's or 50's, and has been stored in a place we call The Inventor's House ever since. The Inventor was the son of the haberdasher, an artist, inventor, car salesman with a vintage car museum dream, a legendary hoarder, collecting everything beautiful and/or interesting. He also had the most amazing handwriting, to name a few things about Mr Inventor who saved these buttons all those years. 

The buttons have been packed in their original boxes since they were made, and as the boxes were lined with fine tissue paper, they are in a remarkably good condition, 
although some show signs of an old dusty stockroom, as you can see on the photographs. 

Size: 18-19 mm

Available in white, red, green, green/brown/dark khaki and blue. Very limited stock.
