Title Fife & Forfar Yeomanry officer's waist belt clasp
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1890
Price £175.00

This belt buckle would have been worn by an officer with the dress uniform up to WW1. To my knowledge, it is the only belt buckle which displays a mounted figure, with the exception of the St Martin's Volunteers of the Westminster Rifles from a slightly earlier era (the 1860s).

The EPNS finish is somewhat worn, but overall the details of the knight's costume and his horse barding are still reasonably sharp. It is missing the female loop, which is all too often the case with these buckles.

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

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
