Title Royal Gaol Trinidad buckle
Nationality British Empire
Period mid-19th century

This is a warder's buckle (probably made in Birmingham) and would, almost certainly, have been worn on a black leather belt following English practice. West Indian colonial police gaol items are quite thin on the ground.

The condition of the female portion of the buckle is relatively good. However, the centre of the male portion is worn down to the brass and the back has evidence of old lead solder throughout.

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

Second buckle arrived. Very pleased with it. Thanks. I'll be keeping an eye on your website for more buckles.

Many thanks for sending the Troddels to me. I was very pleased that they were in the fine condition that you described.
