Title 9th International Railway Congress lapel badge
Nationality Italian
Period 1922
Price £25.00

This nicely made enamelled badge would have been given to all the railway personnel attending the congress which was held in Rome in April 1922. It is almost certainly of die-struck silver (unmarked). The central motif is a splendid eagle with the coat of arms of the house of Savoy on its breast in white and red enamel.

The condition is excellent, with no damage to the enamel. The back is flat and the lapel fitting device has been somewhat distorted, but appears to be intact. I wouldn't recommend straightening it in case it breaks.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
