Some lovely West German glass buttons mounted on Beutron cards: 1950s
Beauclaire roses on non Beauclaire card:
There is newspaper glued to the back (as was done to prevent the unravelling of the thread used to attach the buttons when cut up like this example) from a 1948 Melbourne newspaper. Of course, old newspaper may have been used for the purpose, but it is another clue as to this design predating 1950.
