VINTAGE button collecting

Button collecting is a hobby that can be traced back to the 1800s. Buttons are small, decorative objects that are used to fasten clothing. They can be made from various materials, including metal, glass, enamel, and fabric. Some popular historic designs include steel cup buttons, pictorial buttons, reverse-painted buttons, and other valuable creations. 
Button collecting is a popular hobby because there are so many different types and styles of buttons to collect. Vintage buttons are especially popular among collectors because they are rare and have beautiful designs. In addition, some buttons have a significant historical value which can significantly impact their final asking price. Other buttons come from limited manufacturing runs or minimal production, increasing their worth.


There are a few things to keep in mind when selling vintage buttons. First, it’s essential to ensure that the buttons are in good condition. A thorough appraisal or certified valuation can help sellers ensure their button collections are in peak condition. Rusty or chipped buttons are not worth much, so it’s essential to inspect them closely before buying.
Another thing to look for when determining how to sell vintage buttons is authenticity. Many vintage buttons are worth a lot of money because they are rare, so it’s crucial to ensure that the buttons clients sell are actually from the desired era. Finally, it’s important to remember that not all buttons are created equal. Some buttons are more valuable than others, so it’s important to do adequate historical research before buying.
Clients that have access to any documentation, verification information, or detailed historical data can present this alongside their auction items to attract more discerning buyers and entice a higher return when they’re selling vintage buttons.  
Or, our clients can take the guesswork out of the sales process, navigate a complicated estate with discretion, or auction their vintage button collection to get the best return for their prized items by working with Lion & Unicorn. For over 30 years, we’ve bought and sold antiques, fine art, and prized collections that include vintage buttons and other signature designs. We know how to sell vintage buttons at the right prices.
