These Royal Navy Lieutenant's epaulettes are maker-marked E.A.SEAGROVE, THE HARD, PORTSEA. The original japanned box retains the retailer's plaque - LARCOM & VEYSEY, also of Portsea; both were well-known British officers' suppliers. Aside from some unraveling to the bullion, the epaulettes are in untouched condition. The original japanned carrying case has a couple of dents and loosening of the velvet lining, otherwise is quite sound. The officer's name plate on the box top is long gone.
