I uploaded these pics a while ago and never did the post. Found these buttons at an antique show New Years day in Glastonbury CT. I am making a quilt using a damaged quilt top that I am recycling and was looking for buttons for it and found these.
I Love the blue baby face button, right above it the tennis player button, and the Victorian pressed glass buttons.
Another dealer had a small box of rooster buttons in a variety of colors and sizes. He wanted $25 for the lot. I just wanted a couple and he said I could take a "couple for free"! I had a real hard time deciding and finally said would you take $20 for the box ... he said yes! Can't imagine where these buttons came from. Some kind of a promotion maybe?
For some reason they tickled my fancy! Had to have them. They are being incorporated into my quilt which I have named aptly "Cock-a-doodle-doo".
