I try to describe items as accurately as possible but I have to confess I am not a button expert. Because of the pearlized quality of these soft yellow buttons, I believe they are mother of pearl. If I'm wrong, do please correct me! Because of the slight concave shape and aforementioned pearlized effect, these buttons constantly shift in color from a light to dark pale yellow.
According to the seller I got these buttons from at the Rennes, France, flea market (second largest in the country), they date to around the 1960s or earlier. For their age, they are in overall fine vintage condition but there are a few things I feel need pointing out: one button has an inside line that circles almost all the way around, one has a black speck, one has about a half-inch dark blemish on the other edge. The placard shows signs of soiling and age.
Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
