Parisian Novelty was a historic nineteenth and twentieth century button-maker in Chicago.  You may remember when Busy Beaver Button Co. toured their south-side facility before they closed, and that we purchased ephemera from them.

Pictured here is original art for an advertisement that Parisian Novelty produced for World War II era “name badge” celluloid buttons.

It’s a rare item that is part of Hake’s Collectibles new auction.  Scope it out here.
