Parisian Novelty Company was the oldest Button Company in Chicago - served Chicago for roughly 120 years. Founded in 1898, the company was a national leader in all things related to buttons, production, machinery, etc.
In 2008, another classic Chicago Company, The Matchless Group (founded 1885) purchased the Button division of Parisian Novelty Company to become the Matchless Parisian Novelty Inc. Matchless Parisian Novelty is currently still a company specializing in button production, located in Chicago on West 49th Place.
Some of the decor that you find in the Busy Beaver Button Company actually came from the Parisian Novelty Company and was purchased when the company formally went out of business.
