WW1 Suffolk Regiment Sweetheart Brooch


This is a WW1 Suffolk Regiment Sweetheart Brooch, made from mother of pearl with a gilt and enamel badge mounted to the fore.

The brooch is in well loved condition, with limited wear to a small area of the enamel, but significant wear to the metalwork.
The original double coiled joint pin fitting is still intact a largely rust free.

The brooch measures 2.8cm in diameter.
