New Finds

Late 1960s-early 1970s Astor

Shrink-wrapped buttons saved sewing onto the card.

For unknown reasons Astor thought it necessary to stamp ‘BROWN’ onto the card of two buttons.


Probable 1950s. Pale pink versions of this style can be seen on the Rex page.

Early 1950s Beutron

Someone carefully sewed the buttons back on with wool after using a couple., and added some extra cotton. Waste not want not!
