This is an antique livery button, they were manufactured mostly in the 1700s, 1800s to very early 1900s. It would have been worn by a footman, valet or occasionally a butler in service to an aristocratic family. Livery uniforms ranged from bright and colorful to stoic and almost tuxedo like depending on the family and region. These uniforms were adorned with sometimes as few as five to as many as thirty decorative buttons that are unique to the individual family and their very precise individualized heraldry. Most were manufactured much like coins, minted with heavy dies and striking plates. This made them amazingly durable, strong, and detailed.。This is a Livery Button for Lord Lawrence Dundas, 1st Marquess of Zetland (1844–1929)。It is quite large, 3cm, and heavier than a standard button. You will probably not see another of this particular button.。Interesting that the CoA is styled the way it is, husband and wife. Dexter for Dundas, and Sinister for Lumley. It is not shown this way in any of the documentation for the Marquess of Zetland that I have seen.。I wonder if the Marchioness ordered the buttons ;)。The following is from Wikipedia.。----------------。Born in London, the son of the Hon. John Charles Dundas, younger son of Lawrence Dundas, 1st Earl of Zetland. His mother was Margaret Matilda, daughter of James Talbit. He was educated at Harrow and Trinity College, Cambridge, being commissioned as a Cornet in the Royal Horse Guards in 1866.。By 1869 a Lieutenant, Zetland retired from the British Army in 1872 and was elected Member of Parliament for Richmond, North Yorkshire that same year. However, he sat in the House of Commons for less than a year before succeeding his uncle as third Earl of Zetland. A Lord in Waiting from May to September 1880, Lord Zetland subsequently moved from supporting the Liberals to joining the Conservative Party in 1884. In 1889 he was sent to Ireland as Lord Lieutenant, a post in which he proved both successful and popular, and remained there until the Liberals returned to power in 1892. He was sworn of the Privy Council in 1889 and in 1892, on Lord Salisbury's recommendation, he was created Earl of Ronaldshay, in the County of Orkney and Zetland, and Marquess of Zetland.。In the 1890s Lord Zetland became more involved in local politics, becoming an alderman on the North Riding of Yorkshire County Council in 1894 and being elected Mayor of Richmond in 1895 and 1896. In 1900 he was made a Knight of the Thistle. A freemason like his uncle and grandfather, Zetland was the society's provincial Grand Master in the North and East Riding of Yorkshire from 1874 to 1923. He was also an enthusiastic sportsman, and was Master of the Zetland Hunt for thirty-five years.。Lord Zetland married Lady Lilian Selina Elizabeth Lumley, daughter of Richard Lumley, 9th Earl of Scarbrough, in 1871. He died in March 1929, aged 84, at Aske Hall, Yorkshire, and was buried there. His eldest surviving son Lawrence succeeded him. The Marchioness of Zetland died in December 1943. They had five children.。Button is quite large at 3cm or 30mm.。----。Shipping is $7.20 for the United States and $25 for everywhere else. Combined shipping is calculated at checkout with a very small up-charge per additional item, I can fit up to 50 buttons in the same box and use Priority Mail domestically. 。Please note that you are looking at an item that was used daily by the service staff of a family anywhere from 100 to 200 years ago. It will not be perfect, it will have dings, wear, scratches, and sometimes a thick patina. The pictures give you a general idea of what to expect but holding it in your hands and looking at it will of course be a much different experience. 。 。
