BUTTON SHEET, twelve lustre glass buttons on two joined card 'Beutron'


Twelve pink, lustre glass buttons with convex, oval centre surrounded by decorative circles around the edge. They are self shanked. The buttons are sewn with white cotton thread in a 2 x 3 diagonal pattern on each card, which are joined. 'Beutron/Originals/STYLED BY THE WORLD'S GREATEST DESIGNERS' is printed in red and black on the bottom of each sheet. The back of each card has information on 'the finest quality' of the glass buttons, although 'the shanks cannot be guaranteed'. However, these buttons are self shanked in the same glass as the suface.
