Very unusual buckle belt from the uniform of the Royal Company of Archers. Gilt in colour. A heavy weight buckle with fastening.
We have never seen one of these before so if you are interested in Royal Archers this could be the ‘pièce de résistance’ of your collection.
The Royal Company of Archers is a ceremonial unit that serves as the Sovereign’s Bodyguard in Scotland, a role it has performed since 1822 during the reign of King George IV, when the company provided a personal bodyguard to the King on his visit to Scotland.
