Default Dorset Yeomanry enamelled cap badge - thoughts?

Good evening

As part of a job lot I recently purchased, included in amongst the other items was this Dorset Yeomanry gilt (I believe)and enamelled badge. I've not seen another like it and when I enquired about it to another collector, he had not seen one either.

Any thoughts on it would be appreciated. Apologies for the quality of the pictures, hastily done on my phone.

My thinking is that it's quite possibly a private purchase or a presentation piece?

Thanks, Chris

Is it enamelled? To me, it appears to be painted (although that could be down to quality of image viewed on a phone).

It could well be. I will double check when I can. It didn't seem to be painted, but i'm always happy to be corrected. Thank you
