Title Dorset Yeomanry epaulettes, other ranks
Nationality British
Period c 1830
Price £40.00

These are typical of the first half of the 19th century, when epaulettes still had a practical function of defending the shoulder from a sabre blow. One button remains, marked 'Blandford Troop YC', one of the DY troops of this period.

They are made of brass with a reinforced tinned iron underlay which holds the scales together.

Their condition is good for their age, though one button is obviously missing and there is one small age crack to the edge of one of the epaulettes.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)

The package arrived savely today and the piece is absolutely marvellous.

It was a pleasure doing business with you and I'm looking forward to future aquisitions.
