Horn Buttons

History of Horn Buttons

Many early American buttons for clothing were made from antler and horn. In the early days horn buttons sometimes were made out of scraps left over from the manufacture of combs and other household objects. Horn buttons represent a pre-colonial tradition. Natural horn buttons were slices of antler or the solid portion near the tip of the horn. These blanks were fashioned in much the same way as bone buttons. Processed horn buttons were patented in 1830. Variations in color depend on the country of origin, pale colors are the most rare and no two pieces are ever 100% alike.
