c. 1796, British Military Gorget, Gilt Brass, Crowned Initials of King George III, Extremely Fine.
This is an original, British Military Gorget, being a decorative part of an officer's uniform, which is believed to date to after 1796, but before 1830. This gorget measures 3.5" wide by 4.5" long, with a 1.5" space between the two arms, and has a brown copper colored interior. There are two very tiny cracks on the upper rim edge, left of the crown and there is a nice original overall patina to the metal. The engraved design is clear, bold and quite attractive.
