1960s Beutron Buttons

In 1960 it was still ‘de rigueur’ to wear gloves and hat to go shopping for buttons. She is matching a swatch of material to the buttons on the handy self-service unit.

The large size of these polyester buttons makes for a beautiful reflective surface;  the buttons really seem to glow.

They are similar to the buttons shown in this 1963 Women’s Weekly  advert.
