New Finds: Carol shared this design back on 11th April 2017, mounted on a Coronet card but with hand-painted details. Circa 1940s.
I have shared many versions of the “Beauclaire Rose”. The design was recycled for decades. When I bought this example I thought it was another version mounted on lucite, but no! It is glass!
Six of these have been mounted on faux-velvet covered cardboard, and set in a cheap gift box.
Did Beauclaire import the glass buttons and embellish them with the rose? Were the buttons in their entirety made overseas? Who were the nameless and forgotten designers, whose work was so successful?
