Jindřich Waldes - not only the king of buttons
Once a well-known entrepreneur, collector, and patron, who gained fame mainly for his snap buttons. The life and work of Jinřich Waldes will be presented by Martin Sovák from the State Regional Archive in Prague. Before the presentation, it is possible to take a look around the exhibition, where you can find a brochure featuring a lady winking at you through a patented Koh-i-noor snap button made by Waldes’ company.
You can have a look at the exhibition before the lecture.
