  Buttons were first used as ornaments instead of fasteners in ancient China. Once snug-fitting clothing began to be used in the 13th century buttons became used for holding the clothing together.

Some antique buttons include the shank button, which has a shank or hole protruding from the back and the covered button which are covered with fabric.

Flat buttons are what we commonly use now and has several holes punched through them where the thread is pulled through to attach the button. The advantages of flat buttons are that they can be sewn by hand or machine. And can be used with heavy fabric.

Vintage and Antique buttons can be made of antler, bone, horn, ivory, shell, vegetable ivory, and wood. Modern buttons are usually made of celluloid, glass, bakelite, metal and plastic. The most commonly used is plastic.

The most common button of today is the flat type. They are easy to work with and thread. The advantages of flat buttons are that they can be sewn by hand or machine. And can be used with heavy fabric. Because much of our clothing is made in factories buttons have become pretty uniform. But in the olden days when everything had to be hand made more fancy types could be put on the clothes.

These antiques were made out of all kins of material from bone, shell to ivory and wood. Now you find them made from plastic and sometimes other materials like metal and glass.

On a side note:
I used to collect coins. I have a pretty nice collection and the books to check them to see their values and prices. One day I was at an auction and some silver dollars were up for auction. I opened my coin book and checked them out and found out the price I could pay for them and still come out ahead.

During the bidding I had a little competition but soon beat them all. I was thrilled that I had gotten them at such a good price. However as I checked out the coins afterwards my heart sank. In my rush to check the value I had looked at the wrong coins in the book. My coins were worth maybe half of what I had paid for them. I felt a little sick. No wonder people were getting excited in the audience. It must have been the owners who were hooting and hollering so much. Also my competition quickly melted away as I continued to bid them up. This was a lesson for me. If I don't have the time to completely check something out before being pressured into buying it, let it go. I don't want to pay double for anything again.


Dear Button Collectors Fans,

I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.

In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
