This is a most interesting oval-shaped display of uniform collar buttons, assorted other buttons, and other miscellaneous items. The display is in a wooden frame that measures 10” x 12,” and contains approximately thirty-five assorted burtons. They primarily consist of Feldwebel and Gefreiter collar buttons that helped identify ranks of men in the German Army, including those for Prussia, Saxony, Württemberg, Hesse, and another for what I believe is one of the Saxon Duchies. Aside from these rank buttons, others include the buttons from shoulder straps that indicated an Infanterie Kompagnie, an Artillerie Battery, or a Kavallerie Eskadron. Also included are a smaller number of uniform buttons. Two officer’s kokarden are included from Bavaria, as well as two silver rank pips that are added for a decorative touch.
One final point: while this is an interesting display, I do NOT believe that this is a period frame. Instead, it was assembled more recently for a collector’s enjoyment.
