Gorgeous Antique Elephant Ivory floral buttons. These lovely ivory flowers or roses are three dimensional and intricately carved. They have self shanks the back. The buttons have yellowed some with age, which is normal with antique ivory. Upon close inspection you can see very fine lines, known as Schreger lines, which are in genuine and natural elephant ivory. Each button is carved in high relief with a great deal of detail.
Antique ivory buttons can be a beautiful addition to your retro sewing projects. They are also in high demand for repairing period clothing. Due to their hand carved nature they may vary slightly. The buttons are 9mm high by 9mm in diameter.
