I thought you'd taken up crochet, then button-collecting! That Scott Draves link is fascinating, and I can't understand a word of it!

Now, I'm wondering if it was used for design research for fabric designs, in the 1930's, or if it's a coincidence. There's stull that looks like pre-Victorian cotton prints, as well!
They also look like many of my Aunt Hilde's antique glass paperweights.......I wonder who has those now......
btw, that portrait of Haechel from the 1860's looks alarmingly like my father, during WW2, except for the 'do!
