1940s Beutron

“Made from BEUTRON. The plastic of the future.”

I presume that cards like these date from around 1947, as the casein plastic was itself referred to as Beutron, not just the buttons, as seen in the advert below.

The Canberra Times, 29th July 1947, page 4.

Strangely enough, the first Beutron was a race horse in 1941. Did the horse belong to someone associated with the company?
