Title 7th Foot (Royal Fusiliers) officer's shoulder belt plate
Nationality British
Period c 1850
Sold

Magnificent example of a rare sized and shaped SBP. To my knowledge, only two other regiments share this large rococo design. This plate was in use from about 1845 to 1855. The fire gilding is 100% intact, as is the blue enamel. One of the most desirable of all the mid-Victorian officers' SBPs.

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.

...the sword arrived safely today... My son, who shares my interest in antique edged weapons and for whom I bought the sword, is delighted.
