Rare Victorian 44th Regiment of Foot ( Essex Regiment ) Officer 's Cross Belt Plate

A stunning quality cross belt plate worn by an officer in the 44th regiment of foot, 1st battalion the Essex Regiment.

It is of all brass three-part construction, the badge is removable from its solid brass backing plate for cleaning. It has a wreath around the outside with two circular straps on the inside naming the regiments battle honours of; Salamanca. Bladensburg. Peninsula. Ava. Waterloo and Badajoz. Above all this is Queen Victoria’s crown and below the Egyptian Sphinx.
As all the battle orders are pre the Crimean war, dating it to 1831 - 1855.

The condition is very good, the detailing on the individual pieces are crisp and clean. There is just a small amount of wear to the very high points on the crown and the Sphinx. One corner of the backing plate is slightly bent, but this is minimal and does not affect its display. No repairs or restoration anywhere on this plate.

Victorian Black Watch ( The Royal Highlanders ) Officer 's Bi Metal Badge in form of a Dirk Belt Buckle

An unusual item in the form of a full size high quality three piece construction gilt and nickel plated officers cap badge (circa 7.5cm tall ignoring the missing star tip), which has belt fittings to the reverse and I can see no trace of prior lugs having been removed so it looks deliberately as if it has been made a a belt ornament. Maker marked to the reverse. The makers details are: R ( & H) .B. Kirkwood, 66 - 68 Thistle Street, Edinburgh (the &H is hidden under the pin). Unfortunately post manufacture, the bottom tip of the star has been neatly removed. However, I cannot say whether this was for comfort of wear or subsequent damage. Still a high quality item with a scarce maker who was making high quality Scottish insignia in the 1890s/1900s. Pre 1902. Also very minor star tip bend left tip Any further information welcome. Condition reflected in the price.
