You are bidding on large and varied lot of mixed sewing buttons, weighing approximately six (6) pounds, and dating from the 1800's through the early 1960's.  This lot consists of a wide mix of styles, shapes, colors and materials.  All buttons in this lot were found in the drawers of an antique Singer treadle sewing machine.  This wide ranging lot comprises many fine mother of pearl and abalone shell buttons, some carved and others dyed blue and maroon.  There are also many examples of pressed glass buttons in black/gold and clear;  several Bakelite applejuice and other colored buttons; bone and vegetable ivory buttons; brass and metal jacket buttons with some overall and workwear buttons; large Victorian coat buttons; and small pearl shirt buttons; floral, celluloid cameo, and novelty shaped buttons; carded wood, shell and celluloid buttons,.  There is a wide mixture of two-hole, four-hole, shank, cat eye and other styles.  The colors in this lot span the spectrum from pinks and purples, blues and greens, to black and white.  Era styles include Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Mid Century Modern.  Many matching sets of buttons are strung together and there are many matched sets of 10+ in this lot as well.  This is a very nice lot of unsearched antique and vintage buttons, perfect for any sewer, crafter or collector.   SIZE: This is a mixed lot with a variety of sizes, from minute .25", four-hole shell collar buttons to large 2.5" celluloid coat buttons.  CONDITION:  Very Good Vintage Condition.  These buttons have been sitting untouched in the drawers of an antique treadle sewing machine for the past 60 years.  Some may have age-appropriate wear, a few may have chips or cracks, some discoloration, dirt and grim, etc., I have not searched each individual piece, nor have I made any attempt to clean them.  The majority appear to be in very good vintage condition.
