encourage others to assist with my research into Button
Manufacturers and Suppliers, (Unifom and Dress), whose names
or marks appear on buttons and the other artifacts they left behind
for us to find.
I am, forced to admit, ( having spent half mine trying), that what I
set out to achieve is beyond the scope of one lifetime. I collect
vintage, antique & modern buttons from anywhere in the world - as
long as they are marked, to me a button without a mark is an
artwork without a signature.
I hope you will find lots of information on these pages not available
elsewhere. For the benefit of those of you who are actively
contributing there are further resources available in the form of
password protected files & pages-soon to be available directly
from this site.
The records I hold on British company histories are extensive,
containing information from: The City Directories; Poor Rate Books;
UK Patent Abridgements; Trade Mark Journals; The London,
Edinburgh & Belfast Gazettes online, as well as material from a
number of archives and their online catalogues covering the
period from around 1700 to modern times. I am always happy to
answer queries if I am able and that's quite a big if - whether you
are able to contribute or not !
I currently, ( November 2011), manage around 2500 page views
per month but those numbers are slightly below what I was
achieving in 2007-2008. Hopefully with the re-vamp & fresh content I
will be able to improve on those results - and therefore feedback.
Don't forget if you want to see more of a particular subject you
