A lovely collection of 23 antique French metal & mother of pearl buttons - one is made from horn with a mother of pearl centre. The largest button is 1.57 inches in diameter, and the smallest 0.7 inches in diameter. Various backs - please look at all the photographs. There are 3 pairs of buttons - the others are all individuals. The buttons are all in excellent condition with no damage. Some lovely and unusual designs in this lot. The buttons all came from the collection of a German lady (now 92 years old) who lived for many years in France. The unusual antique French box in which they were found is included. Interesting hoard!
