Beutron developed several lines of buttons around 1950 including metalised plastic fashion designs and cardigan buttons with backing disks. The free added cotton (mentioned below) first appeared in 1949 on their “All Purpose” cards of buttons.

These larger cards of buttons were sold from (probably) the late 1940s and into the early 1950s, when they were phased out.
