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.
Lastly a little group includes—-a butternut button??
Thanks for tuning in—see you at the next show maybe.
