Vintage Brass Great Britain Coat of Arms Button Set, Circa 1980's
Lovely, rare and unusual. This is a set of 16 gold-colored blazer buttons depicting the British Monarchy’s Coat of Arms. Eight large and eight smaller cuff buttons.
I rescued these buttons from a vintage (circa 80s based on style) woman’s high quality silk blazer. The jacket was in very nice condition, but super dated fashion-wise.
Makes a wonderful gift for the Anglophile!
The buttons are unmarked. In lovely, near new condition. The larger buttons are 7/8” in diameter, and the smaller cuff buttons are 5/8” in diameter, approximately.
The buttons depict a stylized version of the British Monarchy’s Coat of Arms which features a rampant lion and rampant unicorn surrounding the Royal Shield. The shield is topped with a crown & lion and is segmented into quadrants. Because the buttons are so small, the detail within the quadrants is not depicted accurately. But we know them to be: in the first and fourth quarters the three passant guardant lions of England; in the second, the rampant lion and double tressure flory-counterflory of Scotland; and in the third, a harp for Ireland.
