Horn Pin Shank Button - $.75 - $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.

Please select all options.
