Title Cornwall Rifle Volunteers officer's waist belt clasp
Nationality British
Period c 1860
Price £150.00

This is the belt plate of the 1st or 2nd Administrative Battalion struck with the county arms surmounted by the Prince of Wales plumes between laurel sprays. It is a die-struck plate in white metal and dates from the earlier years of the unit. The later examples were the tongue and buckle variety.

It is in excellent condition throughout, with some polishing wear to the highlights. The female portion of the buckle is held in place by the male tab at the reverse, which has been crushed to hold it in place. This could be sorted out quite easily.
