2 Hand Painted Novelty turned Wood Buttons, Boy & Girl. These are New Old Stock from the 1950s. They are Hand Painted and no two are exactly alike. I tried to get a pic of the stamp on the bottom. They are marked Japan, but very hard to see. They measure 1" high, and have a metal shank inserted into the back. These buttons just as sweet as they can be. The lady has a bright blue apron over a yellow skirt and red blouse. The man has a bright blue over brown pants and both sport a bright green hats. I have several of these. If you have interest in more, email me,and I can make a special listing for you. They will make a great addition to your button collection. They come from my private collection in Maine. This information came from another button collector, Thanks Peg!
KOKESHI (wooden doll-like)BUTTONS

Button collectors often find small, painted wooden doll-like buttons, but few realize what they are..tiny KOKESHI. Very popular in Japan as household ornaments, Kokeshi there are avidly collected. Always of wood in a stylized, cylindrical body form, Kokeshi have a distinct head, but no limbs (the arms, hands, and legs are not carved, but inferred) and the hair and features are painted without detail to "preserve and further exaggerate the basic simplicity of the piece". NON-button Kokeshi range in size from 1 inch to 24 inches.
If you are lucky enough to find a Kokeshi button, look at it very carefully--a very few lucky collectors have discovered that the head of their little button-doll unscrewed, and within the hollow body were tiny ivory dice.
