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

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.
