Fireman's Dress Scales pre 1930

These are in good condition and are 13 graduated white metal scales with a white metal button at the tip to attach to the epaulette. They have leather backing with laces and brass blades.

If the button is as shown it is a standard fireman's button, but as these are on dress scales I am assuming these would have been worn on prestigious occasions (or possibly they are an officers?). This style of button was used from the late 1800s right up until the 1930s. They would have been used in any part of the UK. Many makers made the same or a very similar design, including both Gaunt and Firmin who were button makers from London.
On a tunic you would have had 12 large buttons, about 25mm, (1") in two rows down the front, with two smaller ones on the epaulettes on the shoulder then two more small buttons in the small of the back of the tunic, and another two small on the breast pockets.
As these are 'dress' scales I am assuming that a 'dress' uniform would be worn but the button layout would be the same.
