A vintage card of 2 Art Deco buttons.
These are large, chunky, coat buttons, with a mock-tortoise-shell effect.
 
The card is marked with the brand name:
LADYSHIP Series
It is also marked:
REMOVE COLOURED BUTTONS FROM GARMENT BEFORE WASHING
MADE IN ENGLAND

 
Size
One-and-three-eighths of an inch across (3.2 cm) approx

 
Colour
  • Mottled brown
Condition
UNUSED
These buttons are unsold shop stock, probably dating from the early part of the 20th century.
The buttons are in good condition, though a little grubby.
I have not attempted to clean them.
The metal is no longer as shiny as it used to be.
The card is intact, though creased, dusty, and a bit tatty round the edges.
It still has the original pre-decimal price hand-written on it: 8 1/2 (eightpence ha'penny).
Please bear in mind that these buttons are old, and will need to be treated gently and carefully.
They are NOT washable, and will need to be removed before washing.
