New Finds: Beutron

The partial card dates from the early 1950s, the two smaller cards from the early 1960s. In that time, G. Herring (later Beutron  Australia Ltd) changed from producing casein only buttons (I think) to both casein and polyester.


This style appears on Coronet branded cards in at least two sizes, both with and without hand-painted detailing.

Here are some other examples.

This button makes me think of a dark chocolate truffle, but also appears in other colours (including milk chocolate truffle!).
