Wonderful craftsmanship, and condition.
A sweet cased gold Royal Air Force for a sweetheart made by The Goldsmiths & Silversmiths & Company, Ltd., London. Finely crafted with a high degree of detail in the wings, especially, Pin back, with a marking that appears to be 9ct in a small cartouche.
The red leatherette case in in equally fine condition, with white silk lining in lid and velvet bed that holds the wings.
Just a wonderful piece of jewelry from the WWII era.
This jewel was in business from the last century, and continued to do business under this name until 1952. Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the crown in 1952, and these wings would have been changed, incorporating the “Queen’s Crown” thus making these early than that date. There is no way to tell when they were made but most likely around the wartime.
