Title Lapel pin with Spanish Royal Arms, silver
Nationality British
Period c 1930s
Price £25.00

This shows the Spanish Royal Arms (probably those of Alphonso XIII, king of Spain from 1886 until his death in 1941 in exile in Rome) surrounded by the Collar of the Golden Fleece, all in enamel. These little badges may have been made to order by royalists in exile during the Spanish Civil War.

The shield is 1.5cm long and is silver (marked 'sterling' on the reverse and, therefore, probably of either American or English make) with a vitreous enamel finish. There is some crackelure to the shield and some minor enamel loss to the centre.

If anyone has any ideas as to what this pin was for, please let me know. I always like to improve my knowledge where it is possible.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.
