Welcome to Diana's list of British Made Uniform Buttons!
Pictures may have been enlarged to show detail. I have described the buttons to the best of my knowledge, and welcome any corrections or further information.
I have several of each of the buttons shown, unless otherwise specified.
Please email me at: Diana's Buttons to order from this page. Postage will depend on the number of items purchased. Please include item name and quantity desired when ordering, and include your name, plus email and mailing address.
I accept payments by check, MO, or PayPal (I can no longer accept credit card charges through Paypal as I have only a personal account, but can still accept payments from your Paypal account or checking account). I welcome international (outside of the US) orders, but must have international MO's made out in US $ or US $ Cash for foreign transactions. If you are out of the United States, and registered with Paypal, I can also accept international payments through them - but am not able to accept credit card payments.
Thanks for looking!
