I love metal. And heraldry and royalty. I stumbled upon these gorgeous antique cap badges a few years ago and began collecting them.
Most of the ones I have are from the UK.
And some I don't really know anything about their origin at all.
The mixing of different colors of the metal is so beautiful.
Hard to believe these were worn on military caps- they're just so artistically crafted.
I took a few from my collection and hung them from ribbons and then on a set of cannisters in my kitchen.
Love this one.
So...I named this post, "Where's Waldo?". If you scroll back through the photos can you find the 'Waldo' in my collection- meaning, spot the one that is blending in and isn't a real cap badge?
Is it not amazing???? Doesn't it have the same feel as the other ones?
When I saw what Constance of Rochambeau was making I just about flipped!! Check out all of the other things I ordered from her.
Everything comes so beautifully wrapped. I'm not surprised as everything Constance does is first class. She encloses a little scroll with all of the symbols and their corresponding meanings. Constance, thank you so much- I love them all. This link will take you to the original post at Rochambeau where you can see more of her selections.
I think I bought enough to start my own Constance collection to go with my cap badges collection! My excuse is that I have three sisters so I'm going to share....maybe.
