Ivoroid Buttons Study


Here are some examples of vintage and antique buttons made of sheet celluloid which imitate the look of ivory. Called "ivoroid" buttons by collectors, these are a favorite type. To qualify as ivoroid, the material has to be molded with a raised design and will often have a contrasting color applied and partially removed to leave a slight tint to the design. Finding ivoroids with different color buffed surfaces is a goal of many collectors. Don't confuse ivoroid buttons with more modern "buffed" buttons as they are not the same type.
