Buttons, buttons, buttons...Lippe-Detmold

Recommended Posts

Hi gents,

I recently got a number of buttons for lackey uniforms...all related to the principality Lippe-Detmold.

Some buttons I was able to identify, for some I´m still looking for information.

First of all I will show the unknown ones, of course all related to Lippe-Detmold showing its Imperial heraldic signs in different variations:

This one shows the heraldic sign of Lippe-Detmold unitl 1687 (although the backside is much younger) !!!!

This one belongs to Prince (Friedrich) Leopold III, ruling 1851-1875:

This one belongs to Prince Woldemar (1875-1895)

This one belongs to Grafregent Ernst (1897-1904):

And finally these ones belong to Prince Leopold IV (1905-1918):

I hope you like these small fellows :rolleyes:

Any comment is welcome...

No,no...I got the buttons by accident...but they are a nice addon to my Lippe-collection.
Before getting these buttons, I even had no idea about their variety...Lippe-detmold used to be one of the smallest principalities
of Imperial Germany.

That is probably the reason why I don't have any in my button collection... (lol!!) ;-)

You did well, enjoy.

I neglected my button collection for some while and most contacts....

But I 'll try to find some help for you.

There is a guy called himself "button guru" living on Malta I think, who happen to have a button forum on facebook, but I am not on facebook....

I was in touch with him directly, but lost his details...
