Four hole, Antique Mother of Pearl buttons on original card. Made Circa 1900 to 1914. Prior to WW1 in Austria. This Button card has 1 gross buttons hand sewn onto a card. 1 gross = 12 dozen or 144 buttons. This was how they were sold to garment makers at that time.
Price of $80 a card equals $6.68 a dozen or .55 per button.
Almost 3/8" wide - perfect size for Daygowns. I like to use them to embroider a Bullion flower in the buttons. Perfectly even holes. Very nice Buttons. My supply of antique buttons are limited.
