By Simone Kincaid, ID Your viewing link will be active for ONE WEEK. Starting with a short history of pewter manufacture, we will explore the wide variety of pewter buttons beyond hard white and bright cuts, including construction, decorative finish, embellishment, back types and makers marks. We will conclude with a discussion of how to assemble a competitive tray, and possible revision of the pewter classification. There has never been a button that Simone didn’t like. She is attracted to the more obscure buttons and perseveres to thoroughly research button history. Simone is a retired archaeologist and bookseller, author of two history books, and a lifetime volunteer at the regional museum. She has collected and served for more than forty years, now hosting many of the NBS online events and participating on the editors, membership, publicity and communication committees. She has been an editor of the Idaho State Button Bulletin since 2011 and Asst. Editor of the National Button Bulletin since 2020.
