New Finds


I wonder who supplied the ‘matching cotton’ to G. Herring from 1949, and General Plastics from 1958?


Although not branded, it is similar to a couple of examples of Maxart buttons. See http://www.austbuttonhistory.com/australian-button-history/ww2-and-onwards-including-leather-buttons-and-obscure-companies/maxart/


Titan was the branding used by  in New Zealand. G. Herring opened a factory there around 1956, but for some reason used different branding for a while, including Titan, Beauty Buttons and Vogue, before changing to Beutron. These may have been manufactured in New Zealand, or imported from Australia before the factory was established.
