Blogtoberfest Day 18 and Pink Saturday…

A quick post today for Pink Saturday, as I’m off to the Vintage Clothing Jewellery and Textiles show to sell buttons.

This is one of the most bizarre buttons I’ve ever seen. It’s made of celluloid and has little bumps all over it. Each little bump is covered with a pronged brass cap. Amazingly intricate for a button, it dates from circa 1920s.

 

It’s been said that celluloid buttons are amongst the most beautiful ever made, and also the ugliest.

What do you think of this one – like it or loathe it?

Big Cat’s Emporium is hosting Blogtoberfest – a post a day during October!
