Item details

Livery buttons like this antique French crown button (buton livrée) are associated with the French nobility and aristocracy. They are just beautiful and the details are stunning. Worn to perfection this rounded gold colored crown button represents the title of Marquess. They are wonderful for jewelry making, scrapbooking and of course using as buttons! I love finding and collecting this type of button and hope you will too.

♥Regarding Shipping;
I am happy to refund shipping overage charges of $2.00 or more.
International customers please 'convo' me for the most accurate shipping quote.

The word livery comes from the French livree meaning to liberate or bestow. It was used to describe giving to retainers, who provided domestic service to the nobles and aristocrats.
It came to mean the suit of clothes worn by menservants in the colors of the master who provides it and for whom they work. So from the stable boy through the page boys, each would wear his master's livery. The master wouldn't wear the livery, but he might have cufflinks or a ring using the same symbol.
Many of the crest used on livery buttons descended from the crest which knights wore on top of their helmets. It enabled friend and foe to recognize each other in battle.
Identifying livery buttons can be difficult because often the crest is shared by many families.

Merci for visiting at my Shop
