Title Roman Catholic Jubilee year pilgrimage badge
Nationality British
Period 1925
Sold

This little gilt and enamel gem was produced, no doubt, as a fund raiser for the Roman Catholic church in England in 1925 to commemorate a Jubilee year pilgrimage to Rome. The badge on the front is the crossed keys of St Peter surmounted by the papal triple tiara.

The maker's mark on the back is 'THOMAS FATTORINI // HOCKLEY ST. // BIRMINGHAM', a famous enamel badge and order maker still in business today.

Its condition is generally excellent, with a little wear to the gilding, and the central portion of the badge measures 3.5cm high.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
