I recently acquired a collection of boxed antique buttons in sets – Victorian and Edwardian buttons – that have been hidden away in the attics of an English country house for years. This is a set of 6 beautiful 19th century buttons - small chips of real semi-precious turquoise stones set into a white metal base (may be silver - I have not tested the metal) in their original silk and velvet lined box. The buttons all appear to be in excellent condition with no damage. They are each 2.3cms (0.9 inches) in diameter. Lovely set!
