Title Imperial German navy dirk belt buckle
Nationality German
Period c 1900
Price £75.00

This little buckle (4cm diameter) was the German equivalent of the midshipman's buckle in the Royal Navy and fulfilled a similar function, namely to hang the dirk from a belt, but in this case a dark blue silk one. As with virtually all of these, there is no maker's mark. This is the second pattern, with the W superimposed on the anchor.

The piece is a fine quality casting of bronze with a fire gilt finish. The female portion of the buckle is missing. The gilt is worn on the highlights of the anchor, crown and cipher. It is otherwise in good shape - a pretty piece!
