These were mine in the early eighties. I’m not sure if they are actually older or my mother and grandmother bought them especially for me. I remember them well on different items. My grandmother would save them when I have outgrown one cardigan and move them on a new one, as I tended to become quite attached to my stuff, buttons included :). This is why the paint on the glass ones is almost gone. The plastic ones resisted better, but I also think they are newer. Anyway, even when I wasn’t a kid anymore, my grandmother carefully threaded these buttons together and saved them for me.
