Each of these three 2-1/2" long sewing buttons from the Art Deco era has a colorful plastic(?) ball on either end of its 5/8" diameter(2" circumference)chrome cylinder - two of the buttons have red orbs and one has navy blue. With two sew holes in the center of one side of the chrome cylinders, the wild design would be smashing on a jacket or could be a closure for a purse. The Deco era was at its peak in 1925, but I think these buttons are from the 1930s. They certainly are an example of the creative thinking in the Century of Progress! Thank you for stopping by.
