Title Selection of Irish officer's buttons, 1881 pattern
Nationality British
Period 19th-20th century
Price £60.00

These buttons are (left to right, top to bottom): Royal Munster Fusiliers, Royal Irish Rifles (I think), Leinster Regiment, Royal Irish Fusiliers, Dublin Fusiliers (QVC), Royal Irish Rifles (blackened version). This is a nice selection, including three of the units which were disbanded in 1922. Makers are variously Pitt, Gaunt, Firmin & Jennens.

The Dublin Fusiliers is a Victorian version.

Only the Royal Irish Fusiliers has virtually all its original finish; the others are a little worn in places, much of the gilding having been polished off.

Buttons received thanks Chris. Again, very happy. No doubt you'll be hearing from me again soon.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
