Due to the increasing quantity of tailor’s button in my collection I have had to give them a page of their own instead of being part of the “Unbranded/generic” page.  Tailor’s and draper’s shops, manufacturing and retailing have been an important part of the retail and industrial development of our country.  They provided employment to many,  as well as a sense of purpose and identity . There is no turning back the hands of time,  but it is a shame that so much local production has disappeared.  Please send photos of your own to add to the blog.

The buttons below are variations on styles I have already shared with you. The gold ones are metal coated versions of a Coronet style.  The glass are 3 more of the Beutron ‘Original’ bird with a big tail.
