Plastic Buttons

As with G. Herring and their brand name ‘Beutron’, (discussed yesterday), there was a period of time for General Plastics when buttons were produced but before their famous brand ‘Beauclaire’ was coined. This was from 1941, when O.C. Rheubens was renamed General Plastics, until 1950, when the name Beauclaire was first used. The card above is an example of buttons from this period. Some of these cards have ” A G.P. Product” printed on the card.
