WW1 Coldstream Guards Officers Silver and Enamel Forage Cap Badge Star Converted to a Sweetheart Brooch - 1917 dated
It is difficult to age these stars other than by hallmarks or look and feel but here we have one which confirms it is an early issue given it is engraved 1917 to the reverse. The loops have been professionally removed and replaced with a pin and clasp, which is fully functional. The engraving to the reverse in a small flowing script reads "From Tom to Hannah, Xmas 1917".
A fine quality vintage small unmarked sliver & enamel officers dress forage cap badge converted to a sweetheart brooch. Two part Garter Star in unmarked silver with blue enamel backing to the Garter and red enamel backing to the St. George's cross. Circa 36mm tall. In excellent condition with no damage to the enamel.
