Garter/ Flapper buttons

First 2 are real Garter buttons from the 20’s
The faces are printed on silk which is stretched over a metal form fitted with a pad shank for sewing. The buttons were used to decorate the fancy garters for ladies silk stockings.
Second 2 are vintage and made by studio artists
Last 2 are modern laser cut plastic buttons
