New Finds

A 1940s General Plastics branding. I have the “starfish” button in blue, grey, yellow and green.


G. P. supplied G.J. Coles from around 1950 and its rival, Woolworths, from around 1954. G. Herring (later Beutron) continued this some time after 1957.

Woolworths: c. 1954

Woolworths c. 1980s. Possibly imported.










Coles: c. 1959.

Coles: Early 1970s.
