Title Grand Hotel Brighton gilt bronze button
Nationality British
Period c 1900
Price £15.00

This is a livery button for the hotel in question, probably worn on a doorman's uniform. It is made by Firmin & Sons Ltd - Firmin became a limited company in 1875 and continues in business to this day. From the style of the piece and the quality of the gilding, it bears all the marks of an earlier rather than later production.

Its condition is excellent, with all its original gilding in place. It is a two-piece button with a gilt face plate folded over a brass back plate.

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
