New finds: ‘Fashionable Buttons’ from the 1940s.

Below I have compared one of the above grey buttons with a green “Lovely Lady’ (General Plastics) button. The material and size are similar, as are the daisies. Could this be another brand of buttons produced by General Plastics?

 

Below: late 1950s Leda.
