More finds from the Antique bazaar:

Amazing! A post card advertising the tailoring firm of Lincoln, Stuart & Co (see the tailoring buttons pages). ‘Sac’ or ‘Sack’ suits  (a.k.a. walking, business or lounge suit, from the French saque) were  made from the 1850s and popular from around 1885-1910. They were made without  darts from the breast down to the pocket and with a less tapered back. They evolved into the modern 3 piece suit.

The Hoadley ‘Pagoda’ chocolate box was made by Duranol. a subsidiary of J. G. Lloyd and Company Pty. Ltd. button and plastic manufacturers. It will make a nice button box.

Beutron cardigan buttons (not a common find):
