2 vintage nurses buttons + clips for belt aprons cuffs collars Hospital uniform


A pair of vintage nurses buttons (the old-fashioned type, with separate clips).
This type of fastening was used when buttons were not washable, and were not sewn on to the garment.
They were used for garments which needed to be washed more often then the normal "weekly wash".
The clips are used to keep the button in place.
These buttons measure just over half an inch across.
They are slightly domed, with white rings on a blue background.
They are suitable for use with nurse's uniforms, particularly items which needed to changed daily, or several times a day, such as:
  • belts
  • cuffs
  • aprons
  • collars.
I do not know exactly how old they are - I would guess probably around the 1930s, or perhaps 1940s.
They are a nice blue and white colour.
These buttons will be supplied in a plain gift box.
Condition
Good condition.
Small marks from normal use.
