Jigger Buttons

This 1970s Beutron button re-uses a 1950s Beauclaire design to make “jiggers”.

A jigger can be the inner button of a double breasted coat or jacket. It also appears to refer to a pair of linked buttons, as on this card and in the below advertising.

The West Australian (Perth), 8th July 1936 page 21. “Note the fashionable jigger button on the coat.”

The Sun (Sydney), 10th October 1948 page 31. A “pert little summer cape”, fastened at centre front with jigger buttons.
