New Finds

A selection of leaves originally sold in Australia by Coronet. Very autumnal!

General Plastics

Both Beauclaire and Leda were made by General Plastics. The top row date from early to late 1950s, the bottom row from c.1957 and early 1960s.



The dating of the thin strips is unknown. The Opal Glo dates from the late 1950s, the Woolworths from after 1957. Note that although earlier supplied by General Plastics, around 1957 Beutron took over this, hence the indent on the card for free cotton (a G.Herring/Beutron feature).
