Follow me on:


I can answer any questions relating to the age of a Button as well as how it was worn or used. Specific questions regarding the material the Button is made of, how it was made and what a Button might be worth today.

Experience in the area

I've been collecting Antique, vintage and collectible Buttons for over 40 years.

I am able to answer questions in Dutch, Russian, French, Arabic, Mandarin, Hindi, Spanish, Japanese, Czech, Hebrew, Persian and Italian.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Buttons are not only small pieces of art but they are little bits of history frozen in time.
