Victorian button with the royal cypher, gilt 26mm


A large size 26mm open backed gilt button of uncertain use with backmark Hebbert & Co. 8 Pall Mall East Despite the striking design of the the Victorian VR cypher beneath crown the style of button does not seem to conform to any of the Royal Household buttons illustrated in Dress worn at Court but, although the style suggests a mess waiter’s button, neither can we ascribe it to a regiment.   jun26/2
