Armorial crest of a charioteer on a baronet’s livery button.


A dramatic and particularly pictorial armorial device on a silver plated 27mm livery button. The design of a naked charioteer in a chariot pulled by four rearing horses has a pendant shield with the red hand of Ulster suggested a baronet. The backmark is PITT & Co. 31 MADDOX ST. LONDONThere is a little if the underlying copper bleeding through on some of the high points of the design.  Apologies for the photographer’s fingers adding a touch of colour by the armorial hand.  It does show how shiny the button is.     feb21/8
