Beutron was owned by G.Herring Pty. Ltd. It later took over Beauclaire which also produced Leda branded buttons. On the “Vintage Advertising” page are ads from stores showing buttons; these are ads placed by the manufacturers.
There were so many adverts from this company I had to separate them into decades. Take a stroll through the years on the next few pages!
From late January 1949 cards of Opal-Glo buttons with matching cotton were advertised for 1 shilling per card.
The price rose by October 1951 to 1/ 3. Cards of 1 and 2 dozen were available as well as the smaller cards. They were still sold by the dozen in 1954.
The price rose again by March 1952 to 1/ 4½ then 1/ 6 in late 1953.
The price came back down to 1/3 by April 1954. They were still that price in June 1957.
