Hello,

I just bought this patch of the 19th century (12cm)

Is it possible to date it more precisely?

thanks
Thomas

By looking at the crown above the insignia, we can determine that it was made and worn during the reign of Queen Victoria. She passed away in 1901, so we can conclude that it was made prior to that time. To me, it looks like other bullion work that I have seen from the 1880's, but I can't be certain of the timeframe any more than that.

Thank you for taking the time to confirm that information.

Would you happen to know where this patch (12cm/4.72in)  was sewn (flag, saddle, uniform ... ?)
