Buttons in 1940s Advertising.

I have fun matching the images to actual examples in my collection.

The Sun (Sydney), 21st May 1947 page 12.

















Although these may be, not the exact examples sketched in the advert, they are examples of the unusual asymmetrical, flower-like buttons sold by G. herring in the late 1940s. I have not seen any other brand make similar buttons, nor even G. Herring after this era.
