1940s G. Herring Finds

“Made of Beutron. The plastic of the future.” This terminology dates the card to 1947; later, the name Beutron applied to the buttons, not the plastic.

The Australian Women’s Weekly, 9th August 1947 page 45.

These style buttons appeared in 1948-9 advertising.

The Argus (Melbourne), 11th June 1949 page 39. Large cards including “famous Beutron Boiling buttons” and second down in the pile, General Plastic buttons.
