DUTCH BELT PLATE: HOUSE OF ORANGE

$225.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-6734

This excavated belt plate came with a collector note that the crest on it belongs to the House of Orange and identifying the plate as ca.1860 and from the Netherlands. The plate is in good condition, uncleaned, a dark brownish green in color, but preserving strong detail on the face and a flat tongue on the reverse. Opposite the tongue are two spots near the upper and lower edges marking the fastening points of what must have been a belt loop. Judging from the shape of the plate, a slightly narrow rectangle, and method of fastening and its similarity to some American plates of the period, the dating seems to us about right. [sr] [ph:L]
