Horn Pin Shank Button - $.75 - $1.00


Product Options

Size:
Button forms pinned thru with a brass or silver shank to create a button loop are found on 18th as well as 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 buttons covered will work well for any project, especially broadcloth where the buttons can be put on by piercing the cloth and cording.
