Vintage Dog Buttons

Flat animal (and other) shaped buttons were advertised in Australia from 1936-1946. They were stamped out of sheets of coloured casein; sometimes with hand chasing and/or painting.

The Sun (Sydney), 5th October 1936 page 12. ” … green bone dog buttons on the grey crepe de Chine blouse …” They were probably casein rather than bone.

The Sun (Sydney), 2nd May 1937 “… four kelpie dog buttons, all of different colours, fastening (the) frock.”

1930s-40s Coronet dog buttons.

The Australian Women’s Weekly, 16th September 1939 page 31.

    At the Daylesford fair today and have purchased several of these animal and bird buttons, I regret none are on Coronet cards.
