Two Piece Silver Plated belt Buckle,? London Jewish Hospital

Two Piece Silver Plated belt Buckle,? London Jewish Hospital

An interesting, but as of yet, unidentified Nurses silver plated belt buckle.It takes the form of a central motif of The six pointed Star of David of the Jewish faith.This is attached to a lip/eye shape base edged
with an oak leaf border.The same base also features on the buckle of the Westminster Hospital Buckle so we may assume the same maker.This may relate to the London Jewish Hospital in Whitechapel or Tottenham or indeed Manchester or Leeds.If anyone is able to confirm who the issuing hospital were I would be most grateful.
The buckle itself is 77mm wide and 67mm tall, with a plain clasp attached to a blue petersham belt .Condition is good but there are considerable surface scratches from use.An interesting item in need of more research.Note the image with the Westminster buckle is for comparison only and this is not included in this sale!
