I love this! Thanks Pat:

“Summer Symptoms”

The card has the ‘G. Herring’ trademark in the top corner. This button was advertised during 1937.

Australian Women’s weekly, 9th October 1937

In 1937 G. Herring & Co. Ltd were advertising for an agent for overseas buttons and buckles.

Published in The Sydney Morning Herald, 29th June 1937.

This may have been the start of the company’s focus on buttons, at least as an importer. They would also start to make pearl buttons around this time. The butterfly button above is therefore an early example from this company; possibly imported.

    I love it too Pat! What a real gem to lighten our hearts and give us joy while we hibernate during Covid19.
    The simple line graphics on the card are quaint and very unusual.
    BUT the buttons are absolutely ADORABLE! I am on the hunt for some.
