This is a kit to make a button "Dump Doll". The buttons are from an old french button factory in Briare, France. The kit is from the annual California Button Society Show in the early 2000s.
The buttons are from The Bapterosses Button, Bead & Tile factory which has been in production since the 1850's. In the 1950's, the factory ceased making buttons and beads but continues to manufacture tiles to this day.
If you go to tour the factory in Briare you can also go to the dump area that had been used by the factory to dump seconds, overstock, end of the day floor sweepings, and outdated styles of buttons and beads. The dump area is the size of a football field, where you can dig through for treasures.
This is not a toy and not for children; choking hazards.
