Horn Pin Shank Button - $.85 - $1.10
Button forms, such as our Horn Pin Shank Buttons, pinned through with a brass or silver shank to create a button loop, are found on 18th and 19th century clothing. They can be covered or left plain. We have seen examples of originals, as well as a waistcoat that survives with Horn Pin Shank Buttons in a private collection. They can also be found in various forms on leather breeches. In 1734 a runaway in Philadelphia was described wearing a pair of plush breeches with "Horn buttons turn'd round and tip'd with silver".
- These sturdy Horn Pin Shank Buttons, covered, will work well for any project; especially broadcloth where the buttons can be put on by piercing the cloth and cording.
- Available in two sizes- 5/8 Inch and 1 Inch.
