PRE-WORLD WAR ONE ENGLISH SHOULDER BELT & POUCH

$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 30-2028

Black leather belt approx. 2.00 inches wide decorated with three parallel lines of gold bullion thread. Item was meant for wear over one shoulder. The ends of the belt are connected to a small cartridge box or pouch that would sit in the middle of the back when worn.

The gold bullion thread shows some light surface dirt from age and storage while the edges of the leather belt show some surface wear. The back of the belt just above the leather pouch has three ornate heavily gilted pieces of a size adjustment buckle, slider and tip. All three are decorated with oak leaves and acorns.

The leather underside is in good condition with only light surface crazing. At the apex of the underside is a cloth loop for attaching to an epaulette button which helps to hold the belt in place.

The small cartridge box or pouch on the back of the belt has a flap with a small brass King’s crown over an intertwined “ER” which is an abbreviation of “EDWARD REX” and the Roman numeral “VII” for Edward the 7th. King Edward VII reigned from 1901-1910. The leather surface of the pouch shows moderate crazing but otherwise it is good. It has a decoration of gold bullion thread to match the belt.  Leather tab and brass keeper are present and in good condition also.

Very nice pre-Great War English accoutrement.  [AD]
