Title Franz Joseph memorial lapel button
Nationality Austrian
Period 1916
Price £20.00

This commemorates the death of the emperor on 21 November 1916. He had reigned from 1848 - longer than Queen Victoria! An impressive individual, much loved by his people, he led a relatively spartan life which was full of tragedy, what with the suicide of his son, the assassination of his wife and the death by firing squad of his brother.

This little pin (3cm diameter) is made of leather set into a tin frame. The details are painted in silver on the face. This is in excellent shape for its age with no corrosion either on the rim or reverse.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)
