The Western Regional Button Association (“WRBA”) was formed in 2003 to further the fellowship of those who share a love of buttons and to add to our knowledge about buttons.
WRBA publishes a quarterly newsletter that shares educational button articles, button photographs, work sheets, etc.
WRBA also hosts a Button Show & Sale in Reno, Nevada, every two years, offering educational presentations as well as a button sales event.
Dating a Paris back button
This lovely Paris back has an A.M. & Cie backmark. The button is pictured in the BBB and described as being modern. I seem to remember a one piece version of this button but I”m not sure. Would like to know if this button is considered Division I (pre-1918) or Division III (post – 1918)
