Titusville NJ Button Show Sept 12, 2015

It’s Saturday and today was the Titusville Button Show–didn’t
see you there so I’ll let you catch up with some photos.

There was a competition of favorites which any visitor could
vote on–and then a regular club competition.  I took some photos
of the ENAMELS group:  (as usual, click on photos to enlarge)

There were lots of booths for buying–here is an offering of
some fine roosters:

and the usual “poke” boxes where bargains can be found!

I bought a few buttons which I’ll share.  At the admissions table
these darling little 1950s glass crown buttons were being sold–I
bought them in black, white and light blue.  I just about have to
tell you that because the photo is so blurry–sorry!

Keeping the crown theme in mind, I bumped into this sweet little
gold medal crown with blue stones, a snazzy blue and white French
casein button . . .    and Buster Brown!

And wasn’t I thrilled to find this fish hook button—-remember
Loic Allio?  Remember his book Boutons ?  Remember that
Francois Hugo made a fabulous fish hook button for Elsa
Schiaparelli?  Look back at my Buttons by Loic Allio and you
will find that this button is quite similar to that one.  I suppose
they all “lifted” ideas from one another—and I have no idea
who designed this fish hook in sort of a polymer material.  But
I like it!!

Then a little group that includes a gold medal Paris back (TW&W)
that sure looks like a Kate Greenaway design . . .and an Indian
from the Ozarks–nice, and my favorite—that red and white
collar design button in old celluloid.  I love it.

    Very pretty and so much variety! Amazing how much art can go into such a small and useful thing.
