Item details

The heraldic designs of the middle ages were not just decor! Nobles ( or anyone with enough money to purchase a heraldic crest) would adorn themselves with their coat of arms. In the middle ages, in particular, you see women with their entire gown made to mimic their coat of arms, and these buttons are no exception.

These coat of arms buttons have a shank, which is the way in which buttons originated. The coat of arms depicted here has no affiliation, so it is great for someone who wishes to add this authentic accessory without worrying if it matches.

Because I only have the two in supply, these would work wonderfully for smaller projects such as:
capelet
cloak
cuffs/sleeve
hat
partlet
collar

These buttons are great for Medieval and Renaissance costuming, but of course, coat of arms designs never really went out of style, so this would work great for any revival fashions such as Georgian, Regency or Gothic styles.

One thing I do want to point out, however, that the traditions of heraldic crests are generally limited to specific regions. British, Scottish and French nobles are the most famous for their use of them, however, they are also popular among German, Spanish and Scandinavian cultures too. Italy is the one that adopted them much later, not taking on the tradition of coats of arms until its unification in 1861. There are some great sources out there for anyone interested in the history of the Coat of Arms!

The button is 7/8" in diameter ( Ligne 36 or 22mm ). It stands about 1/2" tall.


FAQs

I do not currently have wholesale products, as most of the pieces I sell are unique and one-of-a-kind. The quantity of items posted are all I have in my inventory. I try to cater to those who work on a smaller, individual project scale. My customers are typically looking for that one button or that one pattern to complete their costume. My products are all backed with research and documentation as to their historicity, so customers can decide which item might be best suited for their historical project.
