Looks like an officer cap badge, quite rare I think.

Default 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards

The auction is finished, but managed to save some pictures. Including a rear view, which I requested. Not convinced its an officer's badge.

It would seem to be an OR cap badge converted to a sweetheart by the addition of enamel and a brooch pin.

To me not worth as much as the cap badge it once was.

It does look good though! But seen this on Ebay and I was confused on what was ramping up the price? £216 is way over the too for these!

It may not even be real enamel but more modern epoxy.
