Vintage Metal Buttons: Brass, Silver and Gold

I was searching through one of  my old button tins and found myself picking out some interesting vintage metal buttons. These brass buttons are threaded together with old string strung through the shank. Embossed on them in french is "Canal de Vieux" which means old canal. I can imagine them on a navy blue blazer!

Here's a beautiful silver button with lots of flowery detail. This one would be pretty on a flouncy white blouse.

A gold dragon embellishes this oriental themed button perfect for a silk jacket.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Button Collecting!
