A card of old USA Superior Quality buttons - in true Pink.  These disk shaped buttons have a series of wavy grooves making them groovy indeed.  Currently for sale at the Vintage Touch ONLINE store at: Superior Quality PINK Carded Buttons

good job Deanna..yes clicking on your tooth glass sharp..click a plastic and its a dull sound also holding a glass button to your cheek it will be cold and plastic will feel warm.

Sonya your pictured aren't clear enough to really tell the single button looks interesting if you could come up with a better picture I probably can tell you the material always a good idea to take picture of front and back in the group photo again fuzzy picture I can tell you the far right one looks like pearl rest look like plastic

Hi Sonya - i'm not a button expert either but I'm told the way to tell if a button is glass is to tap it against your teeth - if it is glass there will be sharp clicking sound rather than dull.  The photo below of the white buttons is a little difficult to tell but a few of them might be mother of pearl buttons.

Hello button collectors! I thought I'd post a button that I find very pretty. it may not be old ,idk, just learning, but I love it,lol! Also a picture of some clear and white buttons i sure could use some info on. How do u tell for sure if a button is glass? Thanks, and have a good day!!
