Smile Black Watch QVC Officer's Shoulder Belt Plate

Hi all a recent addition,

Black Watch Royal Highlanders Victorian Officer's shoulder belt plate. Photos from phone so not best quality sorry.

A four part example with wear and some damage. Seeded gilt back plate with silvered saltire, within a wreath of thistles, a circlet inscribed "Nemo Me Impune Lacessit" , to the centre St Andrew, surmounted by a Victorian crown with sphinx (cracked)below. Top scroll inscribed "The Royal Highlanders", bottom scroll inscribed "Black Watch"Two hooks and two studs to the reverse. Makers stamp R.& H.B. Kirkwood ,66 & 68 Thistle St., Edinburgh. Reverse retains original fixings comprising two hooks and two studs. Pins missing to rear.

Have family provenance of it having belonged to a Michael James Richmond and Richmond engraved to rear. Nice topic for research.

Regards Dean
