Bombay, Political Officer, 19mm


This pattern of royal button was worn by all Political Officers in the Bombay Presidency and by some grades elsewhere in India and some Royal Household staff at home. This is a very good, well made example of the medium sized 19mm button with backmark PITT & Co. MADDOX ST. LONDON. It retains some gilt and has king’s crown. This size would probably be worn on the cuff but we have also had a white tropical tunic where this size was worn on the front fastening. We know from the provenance of this button that it was worn by a Bombay officer. aug18/2
