Founded in 1906 by George G. Greenburg and Henry J. Duckgeischel, the Green Duck Company produced metal buttons and other novelty devices that have defined American culture and stories for nearly a century.
This button is from a set, though the number of the complete set is unknown. It features a panting wolf wearing a newsboy cap and reads “I’M A LITTLE WOLF,” while others in the set feature varying characters and the “I’M A LITTLE ___” slogan—i.e., “I’M A LITTLE DEAR,” “I’M A LITTLE GENIUS,” and “I’M A LITTLE NUIANCE.”
