Description

Charm String buttons include the very finest small glass and jewel buttons made between 1860’s – 1900.  Many were made into strings of 1,000 buttons by young ladies who believed that when the string was complete, her Prince Charming would come along to marry her.  Most of the buttons were given to them by aunts and friends.  The girls would meet and gift or swap their buttons.  They were not allowed to buy them.

These are very pretty glass buttons and would make a nice embellishment cluster.  Shade of pink.  Bottom button is white.  Sizes 7mm, 9mm, 8mm, 13mm, 10mm. $20 for 5 buttons.
