Vintage & Antique Button Finds

Antique Button 2

Since moving to Brighton, I’ve been browsing through antique shops and stalls almost every weekend. Well, actually, one of the reasons why we decided to move to Brighton was because there were so many places that handle vintage trinkets here! Last weekend I spent a good couple of hours going through boxes of vintage buttons at my favourite shops.

Antique Button 1
Antique Button 2-2

These are my favourites, all made in between 1920-40’s.

Antique Button 3

These simple cuties were apparently made in Victorian era, in the late 19th century.

Antique Button 4

These French buttons were made in the 1950’s.

Antique Button 5

I haven’t got a clue when these were made, but they sure are cute as buttons!

I really want to learn how to determine the age of vintage and antique goods, especially jewellery and buttons. If you know good books or ‘how-to’s, please let me know!
