This gorgeous stick button is meant for closing a knitted or crochet shawl or neck scarf. But why limit your ideas to the original design? We love these for book closures, necklace and bracelet closures - all kinds of things!
Made of modern plastic, the button gives you the sense that it is from the mid-20th century. It has the feel of bakelite or celluloid, but it is relatively new. The top is a deep ruby color. The rest of the button is black.
These are new old stock from a knitting shop that closed a decade ago. Each button features two holes for attaching. It measures 2-1/4 inches long by 1/4 inch wide and 3/16 inch deep.
