Are these buttons old?? (or just different)
Found these buttons today, and have never seen anything like them before. There are 5 altogether, 2 seem to be sort of cufflinks, but the other 3 are a puzzle to me. BTW, they seem to be women's buttons as they all have the same "flower" design.
The back shank seems to be a sort of pin and when pushed comes out the other end. It is spring-loaded.
Has anyone seen something like this, and if so, is there a special name for these buttons?
