Another beautiful silver and enamel nurses badge from the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing of St Thomas' Hospital.Demand for these remains high and I'm afraid the price reflects this demand and my purchase cost.
For more information on the history of the design see;http://thenightingalefellowship.org.uk/the-nightingale-badge/
The enamel on this badge is in excellent original condition with no chips cracks or flaws
The pin, and clasp are good and a safety chain is in situ.It is engraved to the rear Nightingale School St Thomas Hospital D Eileen Clifford Witney 1949 (Priscilla Alys May Shipway is shown as being registered as SRN 95165 on 2511.38 having trained at St Thomas 1933-36)
Although not marked as such I know that these were silver.
Please do email me with any further questions or if require further pictures,Thank you
