Faux tortoise shell swirled set of four, vintage, extra large, vintage Bakelite buttons. Each was tested and is authentic Bakelite circa 1950. They measure about 1 - 3/8 inch across the face, are 1/8 inch THICK.
All four are in above excellent condition. White spots in the pictures are reflection or dust, not damage.
They have fabulous shades of swirling brown and golds to imitate tortoise shell. VERY realistic.
The centers are carved in concentric circles. They are polished to a satin finish. There are embedded metal loop shanks.
Perfect to replace the worn fabric buttons on your favorite vintage coat or to use in an artistic creation. These are big enough to be the basis for a jewelry artisans ensemble.
They would also make an amazing closure on a handcrafted purse.
