Buttons, Aviation Militaire

The button on the left at 21 mm diameter with horizontal stripes behind its winged propeller and roped surround has the ARA Depose trademark on the back.  Typically 7 to 8 buttons were used to close the front of the tunic.  Another version with a pebbled background is shown on the right and did not have a trademark on the reverse.  The button in the middle at 15 mm diameter has the Perfectionne trademark and was typically used for the tunic's 2 epaulets and 4 pockets. Other makers made these buttons, as well, and you can read more about this here in an article from Over The Front, Volume 37, No. 2.
