Kepner/Jensen Estate Auction

Zella Kepner Button Collection

These buttons and button bulletins were collected by our grandmother Zella Gillmor Kepner from approximately 1915 through the 1970s. Zella Kepner’s interest in buttons began in her childhood, when two different aunts gave her their charm strings. She was involved with local, regional and national button organizations throughout her life. From her childhood in Iowa, to attending Ward-Belmont in Nashville, to the University of Nebraska, working for the Omaha Sun-Bee in the 1920s, then marrying and raising a family, she continued to research and organize and collect buttons, which she arranged, mounted and displayed in her Osceola, Nebraska home. This collection is being offered by her three grandchildren, who have many happy memories of exploring her framed cards on our visits to her house.
