"Louis XIV spent the equivalent of £3 million on buttons during his life time."

Also at Button World:

"Buttons that tell a story"

"Buttons are often storytellers and over the years buttons have been made to reflect some of the world’s most famous tales from cast metal Aesop’s Fables buttons (1880 – 1900) to wooden Snow White and the Seven Dwarves buttons (1937 – 1940). "
