The other day when searching for buttons for my recently refashioned shirt, I went through my button drawer and found these. Aren't they the weirdest buttons you've ever seen? I just love the detail and their expressions. They are from my grandma's stash. She had a lot of buttons and I inherited most of them.
I believe these are from when she lived in Japan during the post WWII reconstruction with my Army colonel grandfather.
I don't know if they are irreplaceable or not, so I'm debating whether they can be used in something I'd actually wear. Guess I'll have to do some research on that particular subject. Anyone know any good button valuation websites?
