Default E. Stillwell & Son London

I have a button with the back mark E. Stillwell and Sons London as the back mark written within what looks like a belt with buckle... from looking it up how the name is written given the date pre 1840. However the front of the button has the kings crown. So this has confused me somewhat. Does anyone have a reference at all to help date buttons? How long where E.Stillwell and sons making buttons for... thanks for you help 😊
