These oh, so pretty glass vintage buttons with a delicate pinwheel detail (circa 1930) were made by a Paris supplier to some of the great French fashion Houses.
Check out the wild and wonderful detail of these vintage bronze and plastic buttons from the golden era of Paris fashion.

We can all benefit from Marcy Tilton's Paris fashion expedition via her website offering jaw-droppingly beautiful vintage buttons, many from French suppliers to couture fashion houses. This fabulous button collection of hand selected, antique beauties (circa 1930's) in glass, bakelite, shell, and vintage plastic (many still on their original cards!) will have you embellishing in grand style. Be sure to check out Tilton's fabric collection and find luxurious and 'slimming' stretch woven knits, hard to come by tulle, and colorful cotton lycra knits--'sew' perfect for t-shirts.

If just paging through this site has you longing for the Left Bank, look for details on Marcy's 'Inner Paris' tour and you, too can go and scour the markets with the "Indiana Jones" of vintage couture.
