Order of the Thistle, strange bronze “badge”


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Just acquired this oddball piece.   A large size (61 mm) Order of the Thistle badge.  It’s nicely done in cast bronze and has significant age.  The question is: were they ever done in bronze for any reason?

Interesting observation Paul. It was acquired with a large collection of WWI British OSD badges.  I wondered if it might also be a Black Watch regimental piece.
