Astor buttons’s web page claims they have been in business for over 50 years. This fits in with cards of buttons printed with pre-decimal prices (i.e. pre 1966), although Astor Buttons (AUST) Pty. Ltd. is listed as being founded in 1983.
Initially stitched or stapled onto the cards, they were later shrink wrapped.
Cute and fiddly little buttons. The cards are scored to allow for shanked buttons.
