Vintage Spring Loaded Collar Button Chain From France
A rare find. Vintage spring loaded collar button chain from France. These were meant to hold a gentleman's collar together thus negating the need for a neck button. This one features a center spring that extends as you pull on the end buttons. The spring is still very tight considering its age. The buttons are MOP (Mother of Pearl). PLEASE NOTE: One button has a small chip as shown in last photo. This was a naturally occurring shell flaw and not that unusual but, nonetheless needed to be noted. It will be noticeable if the light hits it right. These were made for collars with button holes on each collar (NOT to be confused with round collar bar holes). Unless you have the proper shirt, these will not work for you. Originals are not easy to find, and have been brought in from France. Buttons measure just over 1/4 inch (Made small for collar button holes). Spring is 1 inch long and extends to 1 1/2 inches.
