Vintage Hand Painted Mountain Scene Estate Buttons
Here is an awesome vintage set of 11 matching buttons. It has been suggested to me that these are made of Tagua nut which is also called vegetable ivory and is a natural plant material instead of celluloid or some type of early plastic, as I had thought. They are handpainted with a mountain and forest tree scene with a figure in the foreground. The material is a deep yellow beige color and the enamel painting is in colors of purple or lavender, green, maroon red, brown and white. The buttons measure about 1" across. They are in good vintage condition with a little chipping to the back edges not seen from the front and there is some paint on the backs of a few buttons as seen in the photo of the backs. What a great find for the clothing designer! These would also be fun to sew to a hat or purse. You will love them!!!
