Boer War? Antique Victorian Silver Sword Brooch With Coloured Paste Stones Chester 1899
A Beautiful and Rare Antique Victorian Silver Sword / Sabre Brooch With Coloured Paste Stones. Hallmarked Chester 1899 A.J.S.
The brooch is beautifully made with the handle engraved and the hilt is set with various coloured paste stones. Full Chester hallmarks for 1899 to the rear alongside AJS which is for the maker Arthur Johnson Smith. Rare item. I’m wondering if this might have connections to the Boer War, given it being a sword, the colours of the pastes and the year it was made...?
Condition is good. It has a complete working pin and period C catch. However, is has a small glue repair under one stone near the hinge. Please see photos.
Measures 6cm in length.
