Vintage French Collar Button Chain. MOP Buttons.
A very, very, hard to find vintage French collar button chain. Feature MOP (Mother of Pearl) tiny buttons that catch the light nicely producing the subtle MOP colors common in this shell. This item originated in France and is a wonderful example. PLEASE NOTE: These were made for shirts with button holes (Not collar bar holes) in each collar. Their small size were meant to bring the gentleman's collars together thus negating the need for a neck button. One button was made a little flat at the top as shown in last photo. This is just the nature of shell. Connecting chain is gold tone. Very rare and classic dress accessory if you have the proper shirt collars. Buttons measure just over 1/4 inch wide. Chain is 1 1/2 inches long
