French & Belgian hunting association buttons

Recommended Posts

French & Belgian hunts associations are called "vénerie" could not seem to find a proper English translation to the word.

Anyway not military related however it involves also tactics, uniforms and lots of shooting....

Her are my new arrival of "vénerie" buttons, bought during a auction in the open during a special hunting celebration in the French departement Maine et Loire.

Stuka F - lovely buttons. They would either have been for different Hunt Clubs - or, more likely are part of the

Coats of Arms of aristocratic hunters.

Venery in English is really anything to do with the hunting of deer. Good post. Mervyn

Hey Mervin,

the people in a vénerie or at least the owners of the vénerie; mostly were aristocrats, but nothing to do with their coat of arms.

The vénerie was usually related to the geographic place of the hunting grounds.

It was different in Britain - if the aristocracy weren't annoying their subjects, then they were slaughtering

anything on 4 legs - or 2 - that moved.

Here is a late 19 th century private forester's uniform (got the trousers too!) who was in service for the family Borluut-Kervijn.

Even when working in the "rallie" area he would still wore this uniform with the family crest buttons.
