    Hey Jean,
    if the buttons are original to the uniforme , I would say a private forest guard for a private domain belonging to a noble family.
    Hard to tell wich family; I could look thise up, but if you could give me what is in the crest , it would be easyer to find.
    The buttons aren't military, that is for shure,I happen to collect that kind of items as well!
    cheers

    It is I who have to thank you, for given me the opportunity to buy it!
    I am very pleased with the aquisition....the wife is not!!! ;-)
    As I stated it is a private forester's uniform.
    The man was in service of Franciscus Gislenus Borluut who died in 1881.
    So I would date the uniform around that time.
    The Borluut is a very old Flemish noble family who are originaly from Ghent and known since the 8 th century.
    They took part at the uprising in 1302 along with other well known historical figures.
    The crest of arms also mentions "Velt Groeninghe- Groeninghe Velt"
    The second crest of arms belongs to his wife , who was Sidonia Maria Colleta Gislena Kervyn.
    Also a very old aristocratic Flamish/ Dutch family.
    There are no more male descendants since nearly 100 years and the castle where thise guy used to be active is now public ownership.
