Title Lapel pin with Spanish Royal Arms, silver
Nationality British
Period c 1930s
Price £25.00

This shows the Spanish Royal Arms (probably those of Alphonso XIII, king of Spain from 1886 until his death in 1941 in exile in Rome) surrounded by the Collar of the Golden Fleece, all in enamel. These little badges may have been made to order by royalists in exile during the Spanish Civil War.

The shield is 1.5cm long and is silver (marked 'sterling' on the reverse and, therefore, probably of either American or English make) with a vitreous enamel finish. There is some crackelure to the shield and some minor enamel loss to the centre.

If anyone has any ideas as to what this pin was for, please let me know. I always like to improve my knowledge where it is possible.

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

I received the item today, you had packed it well and there were no problems with customs. Overall I was happy with it although the blade was a little bit worse than I had imagined, however thank you for your efforts.
