My website has a gallery section where many of my items are shown, including heavier items which are not easy to post! I welcome browsers to my shop which is open Thursday to Saturday. I also stock antiques and collectables of all kinds including contemporary studio pottery and glassware. I also look out for the weird and quirky!

Description

It is of interest to both those interested in antique jewellery and also militaria enthusiasts. The "Rising Sun" badge was the official insignia usually worn on the brim of a military slouch hat. The wording is "Australian Commonwealth military forces" which was standard through both World Wars. The word "Commonwealth" was dropped in 1949 so this brooch predates 1949. The back of the brooch is stamped "9ct sil lined", which I understand to mean that it is silver plated with 9 ct gold.
