New finds from Jean

 ‘Boilproof’ sold by Woolworths pre 1957, manufactured by General Plastics.

Embassy buttons c.1952-8, manufactured by General Plastics.

Beauclaire Superglow, 1955-7, manufactured by General Plastics. It was a squeeze to fit one dozen buttons on a small card.

Beutron Originals, 1950s. These are chunky buttons, so probably were intended for heavier material clothing such as jackets or coats.

Myers Emporium never did manufacturing; their buttons were supplied by manufacturers such as  Beutron, see below for mid 1960s example.
