Description
 
I came across a small lot of Austrian tiny buttons. Austrian minis are a 2 piece metal button, never more than 1/2" in diameter, with a metal loop shank and, normally, a Japanned back which is frequently cup-shaped. The metal rim is usually folded over the back. The center designs may be pearl, ivoroid, velvet, fabric or others. These buttons were made approximately between 1885 and 1914.

This tiny, tiny button is brass in color and has a small single flower on the left side and a paisley shaped fabric insert. Possibly used as a perfume button. Perfume buttons were made incorporating fabric as part of the design. The ladies would dab their perfume on the buttons themselves, rather than running the risk of staining their clothing.
Very unique, and nice patina. Button measures a little under 3/8" and has a cup shaped brass looped shank. Just darling for an Austian tinies collection. Up to six buttons will mail for the same price. Because we carefully bubble wrap your button, they must mail at first class package rate. This purchase is for one tiny button, last photo shows some other styles.
