Title Royal Indian Marine officer's belt buckle
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1901-48
Sold

This is the buckle for the sword belt of the officers in the dying days of the British Empire. The Indian Navy grew from the fleet of the old East India Company, who had armed merchantmen protecting their trade in the East. It has a fine gilt finish on a brass base.

Its condition is excellent, although one of the keepers appears to have lost some of its gilding.

Bayonet arrived safely today. Thanks very much indeed, I'm very pleased with it.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
