The buttons can be removed and sewn onto something else. That buttons are made of very dark brown horn with inlaid silver and mother-of-pearl dragon flies. The bodies are silver and the wings and eyes of mother-of-pearl. Each button measures 3/4" X 1/2". One button has several chips on it. One has a tiny one. Others are missing eyes or parts of the wings.
