 The Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City owns a late 18th century French salesman's sample card of metal buttons.  To see it online, go to http://collections.si.edu/search/index.htm, and enter "sales book of sample buttons" .  Our selection of fancy buttons is based on similarity to buttons shown in that set, as well as to buttons shown in 18th century portraits and other museum collections.
