Anyone interested in firefighters' memorabilia will love this sterling stick pin showing the British fireman's metal helmet of the Victorian period with a couple of crossed axes behind it. It has some English hallmarks that are partially hard to read but on the front is the lion passant indicating that the piece is sterling silver. The stickpin is a little over 3" long and is very beautifully crafted and detailed. It dates from about 1880.
