Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed gilt copper alloy button with separate soldered attachment loop, embossed with the Royal coat of arms, consisting of a crowned garter with a lion to the left and unicorn to the right, with the legend HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE (the French phrase meaning: "Shamed be he who thinks evil of it") within the Royal Garter. From these details and the size of the button, it appears to be a General Service cap button, which were introduced in 1871 and in use until 1924 when a variety of regimental buttons were re-introduced (Meredith & Cuddeford, 1997,…

A sherd of Alice Holt/Farnham grey ware. Pale buff-grey reduced fabric with abundant, well sorted quartz sand temper. The exterior surface dark grey to silvery grey and has several horizontal and diagonal burnish lines. A body sherd from a jar. The Alice Holt/Farnham industry was active from the 1st to 4th centuries, but the slightly metallic finish suggests this may be the later product of the industry (i.e. after c AD 200 - 250) It is hard fired and wheelthrown. Date: Roman - c. AD 200 - 400 Weight:11 g See http://potsherd.net/atlas/Ware/AHGW.html

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed copper alloy button with separate soldered attachment loop at the back. The front of the button depicts, in relief, the Prince of Wales plume of three feathers within a coronet with the motto ICH / DIEN in a scroll on either side. The three feathers and the motto "lch Dien", German for "I Serve", go back to Edward (1330-1376), the eldest son of Edward III. He was known as the 'Black Prince' because he had his suit of armour painted black, a very unusual thing at the time. He later became the Prince of Wales and the three feathers and coronet…

Cast copper alloy hollow-domed, die-cut, two-piece button with a soldered circular attachment loop at the back. The front of the button depicts the 'Ordnance' shield (Ivall & Thomas, 1974, p.42) with three artillery guns, one above the other, surmounted by a band with three bezants in a row, alternating with piles of shot. The surface of the button is very worn and corroded and would have originally been plated but no evidence of that now survives. The button is probably stamped with the words 'PORTREATH ARTILLERY VOLUNTEERS' from left to right on either side and above the shield, but…

Cast copper alloy two-piece domed button with soldered attachment loop. The face of the button is very worn and hard to make out but the back mark is clear: .FIRMIN & WESTALL. STRAND which operated in London from c.1794-1812.

At this time the buttons depicted the Prince of Wales feathers so this button must pre-date 1806. The mott…
