What to do with Old Silvery Metal In-lay Tortoiseshell Buttons

Another Day - Another Button
Not just any old button. These buttons are beautiful. They came in on the original card, held on by tiny pieces of rolled paper. I haven't decided if it is thatched huts or maybe a basket motif? The silvery image is in what looks to be real tortoiseshell. Even with a value of $50. and being collectible finding a buyer or selling them is problematic. We do not get serious collectors for buttons in the store.I am an amateur at best. As a donation we do not know how old they are or where they were manufactured. 
If you have any more information about buttons like this please let me know. Your help will be very appreciated. I would really like to find a new home for them.
