Title London Irish sergeant's cross belt plate
Nationality British
Period c 1861-1900
Sold

This would have been worn on a brown leather cross belt with a pouch attached with either a bugle horn or the harp of Erin mounted on the pouch. In the early period, many of these rifle volunteers had brown leather belts, later replaced by black patent leather. The officer's version of this plate was normally hallmarked silver.

It has had a silvered finish, most of which has worn off on the front, although traces of which can be clearly seen on the reverse.

testimonials

Having had time to have a relax and a good look at the brooch, am very pleased with it, many thanks for sending it on promptly and safely. Will keep an eye on the site.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
