Old House Hardware: Wooden Turnbuttons

Pugsley Place has two wooden turn buttons that look hand carved. One is still being used to fasten an interior window. The other is down in the basement, loose. I'll show you photos of both.

One of my upstairs closets (clearly not originally a closet) has a window that swings in on hinges. It's held closed with a wood turn button:

In the basement, I found another. Hand carved. Beautiful. Unattached. I have no idea what its provenance is, but it is gorgeous, so I thought I'd share it:
