Gorget British Crest
Gorget British CrestThis Gorget features a raised Lion & Unicorn crest (U.K.). It is a narrow Gorget, measuring just 3.5" across at the widest point. From top to bottom, it measures about 4.5". It has a slightly raised front edge. You will find it slightly heavier than some of our other Gorgets. It comes with a cord covered wood button and an attached piece of twisted cord. If there was a second button, it fell off. You can use the pre-drilled holes to attach your own Leather Lacing or other cord.
Originally, 18th century European military officers wore Metal Gorgets as part of their uniform. In North America, Europeans gave gorgets to Native American leaders as trade goods. Over time, Metal Gorgets became prized trade items and part of Native American Regalia in the Eastern United States. This Gorget is very appropriate for French and Indian War period regalia.
A previous owner wore this Gorget, but it remains in very good condition.
