Bombay, Political Officer, 25mm


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 large size 25mm button with backmark PITT & Co. 31 MADDOX ST. LONDON W. It retains almost full gilt with a frosted finish to the central royal arms. The imperial crown above the arms suggests the reign of Edward VII. We know from the provenance of this button that it was worn by a Bombay officer. apr29/3
