Title Scots Guards levee waist belt clasp
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1890
Sold

This nice firegilt example is the levee sword belt buckle, worn with the sword at court instead of the white buff baldrick (normally worn in the field). A relatively rare survivor from the mid-19th century. There is a very similar example at the National Army Museum, Chelsea, London.

The green enamel is a little a/f, but the gilding is largely in good shape.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
