You may have read about old mourning buttons in the section on
The tradition of mourning buttons.

You might have some old mourning buttons in your button jar. They will be black, and will usually be made of jet or black glass. Mourning buttons were sometimes made of plastic, however.

At my presentations throughout the country I always display a number of old mourning buttons, and I am always looking to expand my still modest collection. If you have anything to contribute, I would be delighted to hear from you info@parlamore.com.
