Buttons II

I never knew I had such a thing about buttons, but apparently I have … for this week anyway.  My mother-in-law has very kindly donated me her own mother’s button collection and as a bonus, check out the gorgeous tin they’re in!  Looks like a hat box non?  Well you’re wrong, it once contained 7lbs of Batger’s (Leading Confectioners since 1748 apparently) Jersey Toffees – SEVEN POUNDS!   Perhaps the buttons were collected for adjusting the formidable lady’s waistbands once the contents had been consumed?  Anyway, many thanks to Mrs W for passing it onto me, I shall treasure it dearly.
