This is a large black horn button worn by a Constable or Sergeant in the Royal Irish Constabulary. As the button has a Victorian crown, this piece can be dated to the post 1867 era (when the Irish Constabulary got the additional title “Royal”. These buttons were replaced by the King’s crown after the death of Queen Victoria in 1902.

This button was most likely worn on an RIC tunic. It measures approx 24cms in diameter.
