10 Genuine Volunteer Buttons made by Firmin
Ten Irish Volunteer Buttons made by Firmin of London. Firmin and Sons Ltd. London would have supplied buttons to independent smaller tailors in Ireland through a wholesaler. The most likely time for Firmin and Sons Ltd. London to have been manufactured would have been between the setting up of the Irish Volunteers in 1913 and the 1916 Rising, because the Irish Volunteers were outlawed after the rising it is unlikely an English company would have made buttons for them, the new Free State Government had a Buy Irish policy so again it is unlikely Firmin and Sons Ltd. London makes would have been made for the Free StateArmy in the Civil War although it is possible. Price reduction but will also be advertising on other sites. Free postage.
