Difficult enough to find as it is - but 12 of them?! I bought these many years ago not realizing that they were not really authentic for doll dressing. More historical artifacts than anything else for the collector or for restoration of a Civil War Era garment. The description from the original dealer is still with each button and reads as follows: Antique molded and hand chased floral design. Pewter with soldered copper hoop shank. Early to mid 1800's. The dealer gave these 5 stars. I agree.
