Title VR lapel pin in pinchbeck
Nationality British
Period c 1885+
Price £25.00

This could be a commemorative piece for any of the late Victorian Jubilee celebrations. Alternatively, it is just possibly an ordinary patriotic piece with no particular date. Her long reign spanned from 1837-1901, but my guess is that this was definitely made towards the latter end of it.

The height of the piece is just under 2.5cm. It is a die-struck item and the pin would appear to be fixed with silver solder. Generally, its condition is pretty good for its age. It may have had an electro-gilt finish, which is more visible on the reverse than on the front.

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

The package arrived today, and the two items are nice. The Mother Cross actually looks a lot better in person than in the pics.
