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.
