Indian High Political Officer’s dress sword belt, circa 1930s


The fine dress belt is of the pattern worn by high ranking Political Officers in India and came to us with the mameluke 1831 pattern sword shown elsewhere in the swords category. It is marked on the leather behind the buckle RANKEN & Co Ltd. CALCUTTA. The fire gilt buckle has the royal arms applied to the central section and the 1½ inch lace to the main belt is of the oak leaf pattern worn by field marshals and general officers of the army. The belt retains its sword slings.   feb27/1
