More about this item

Vintage Sewing Buttons.
  • By BGE.
  • Made in Western Germany.
  • Green.
  • Plastic.
  • Knobby.
  • First in fashion.

These retro translucent green buttons are knobby and are characteristic of a flower. They measure three quarter inches in diameter.

These were made in West Germany by BGE, which when spelled out is Bailey, Green & Elger.

The exact age is unkown but they were originally priced as .90 cents and marked down in red pen ink to .45 cents.

The first photo that you see was taken with a camera. The second photo was taken with a scanner. Same goes for the close up in the third and fourth photos. As you can see, the color varies slightly among the two.

New old stock
No breaks or scuffs whatsoever. These have been lovingly stored.

I package all products with care to ensure safe packing arrival.
Purchasing Specifics
International: Shipping to international is unavailable on this particular listing. Thank you for your interest. United States: This listing ships by first class mail which takes 2 to 5 business days from the time the package ships out. Shipping is calculated per buyer's location. A tracking number is included.
For complete details on method of payments accepted, returns and shipping, please click on the following link. Have more questions? Contact can be made from each individual listing with quick response time.

Combined shipping: For USA buyers purchasing first class mail listings, combined shipping is pre-set within my booth so that buyers can make multiple purchases and proceed to checkout without having to contact the seller for a combined shipping quote prior to purchase. Please note that first class mail listings are unable to automatically combine at checkout and calculate properly when purchased with another shipping service such as media mail but will calculate properly with standard post mail and/or priority mail. If interested in purchasing a first class mail listing along with a media mail listing, please email for a combined shipping quote prior to purchase.

When purchasing numerous listings, seller will ship using the most economical shipping method, which may occasionally include shipping the items in more than one box, unless prior arrangements have been made by email through Bonanza. Seller will always communicate with buyer.

In the case where a buyer is charged too much for combined shipping, seller will refund the buyer through whichever payment method that was used. This is only the case in an overage paid of $1.01 or more. If buyers prefer to email for a combined shipping quote prior to purchase, please feel free to do so.
