Group of seven buttons, buckles and sew on items in Mother of Pearl Shell Circ 1890 - 1910 (SOLD)

Mother of pearl shell buttons, buckles and loops make up this parcel of tiny, exquisite sewing items. These little buckles are from the late Victorian into the Edwardian period, circa 1890 to 1910. Each one has been crafted, often with the use of quite a bit of hand-carving and the attention to detail is amazing. The little thistles would make a lovely pair of earrings, as would the border cut circles. So beautiful to use in
craft jewellery making but also interesting enough to add to a collection of antique buckles and buttons. The size and scale of the pieces would make them useful for children's clothes or even for costume for larger sized antique dolls. Now to confirm the sizes I have photographed the items grouped with a 5p piece to help you to gauge this for the button and buckle group.  In case you are an overseas customer and are not familiar with the British 5p coin it has a diameter of 1.5 cms. These mother of pearl treasures are lovely little miniature pieces of work.  For the price you receive the group of seven buckles etc. so that is two thistles, two loops, two matched carved buckles and one circle buckle.
