This is an interesting sewing related item that you now don't find every day.

This is a 1930s set of original LARGE Butterscotch / Amber Bakelite or Catalin buttons.

There are six matching buttons in the set - and all are in excellent damage free condition, having never been used.

The colour is the usual rich amber colour that you find on old Bakelite / Carvacraft pieces and each button is in lovely condition, nice and glossy with a slight creamy marbling throughout.

The colours in "real life" are a bit brighter than in my photographs.

The edges of the buttons are all nicely rounded off.

Each button measures: 6.5 x 3 cm.

Total weight of buttons is 114 grams (unpacked)

This is a fair asking price for these rare and unusual examples.

I would certainly describe these as being larger examples of decorative buttons - and they would probably be features items on a coat or jacket - or perhaps cleverly adapted and refashioned by a skilled crafter and be transformed into brooches.

With their glossy finish - they do look like large butterscotch sweeties and nearly good enough to eat. The colour, in reality, is much nearer to the brighter yellow hue on all buttons as shown in my photos of single ones in my hand.

I have also photographed these beside a UK pound coin - to try to give you a sense of scale.

As noted finding only a couple of these large buttons is hard enough - but to find a total of six, unused matching ones - is certainly rare indeed.
