General Plastics (and their predecessors) produced buttons in both Australia and New Zealand from the 1930-40s (see the NZ and General Plastics pages for more details). Below are 3 variations of branding/printing on Beauclaire style cards:

And here are some more photos showing styles and colours:

Sorry it is hard to see, but these are dark green.

The buttons on the right are burgundy.
