Button Tiaras

The buttons of the two different tiaras, 4 button and 6 button, are not identical. The ones from the four-button-tiara look more like sunburst or star-design, while the ones from the six-button-tiara realy look like flowers with small leafesIt was sayed, that the buttons were the property of Carl XIV Johan. They are supposed to be a part of his gala uniform, perhaps from his days as french marshall. After that he had them placed on the king´s crown for hos coronation 1818, but they were later removed and made into tiaras. But, it could be older items and also used of Marshall Bernadotte, earlier the famous and amazing stomacher and brest decoration and hair jewels of the Queen Luisa-Ulrika.
