Title Saxon court official's button
Nationality German
Period c 1900
Price £20.00

This fine button (3cm) shows the Saxon coat of arms with 'Fideliter et constanter', the motto of Sachsen-Meiningen, one of the Saxon dukedoms. It is marked 'EXTRA FIEN' and would appear to be made of tombak with a good heavy coating of gilding to the face. Such buttons would have been worn on court officials' tunics and possibly on greatcoats.

It has none of the coppery glow that my camera/lighting has given it, but is a nice yellow gilt colour. The condition is excellent for its age, with a little peripheral wear to the gilding.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Very pleased with it [the bayonet].

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
