Their story:
These buttons were found in an old, abandoned warehouse on the island of Malta.  Previously owned and stored by the only wholesaling family on the island.  The wholesale business had been started in the 1900s when, according to the eldest member of the family, little shop owners would arrive by donkey and fill up baskets to take away and sell.

For over 100 years Mr Galea, his son and grandson had been buying, in bulk, from Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Japan, the UK and its Empire, and later Hong Kong, and as items fell out of fashion they were just left in the warehouse, forgotten, and later acquisitions piled up in front of them.
