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.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)
