Title KuK enamelled commemorative buttonhole
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1914-15
Price £20.00

This has a German inscription to the effect of, 'Let your heart stick to God and your fists to the enemy'. It has a maker's mark, 'Kriegshilfs Bureau'. This badge (2.4cm across) would have been sold to raise money for the war effort. It is struck in gilding metal, with a black and mustard yellow (not as in photo) enamel finish.

The condition is good for its age, with some patination to the enamel and some sort of fading to the middle line of the inscription.
