I would not necessarily say it was Edwardian, but, it is certainly a pleasing old cap badge, a great shame it is missing it's original blades.

Again, I suppose this is a cap badge as opposed to a collar badge? I'm only saying this because it seems a bit large for a collar, but obviously I could be totally wrong. It was described as Edwardian, but I've no idea how to check this. Any info would be helpful.
Cheers,
Leo

Another thing is, it's quite weighty. Cast bronze as opposed to die stamped brass I suppose?
