Pins gifted by Queen Victoria are to be sold by a Cotswold auctioneer.

Kinghams Auctioneers in Moreton will sell off a collection of four gold pins that were gifted by the iconic sovereign.

Victoria, the country’s second-longest reigning monarch, presented the pins to Sir Alfred Mordaunt Egerton, a high-ranking soldier and courtier.

In 1878 Sir Alfred married Mary Georgina Ormsby-Gore, lady-in-waiting to the Duchess of Connaught.

He died in 1908, aged 65.

Among the four pins which come from his estate is a gold pin with an enamelled '80', relating to the monarch's 80th birthday, and split pearl highlights.

The reverse of the pin is engraved with the date May 24 1899, the late Queen’s 80th birthday.

Another is set with an old-cut diamond cluster.

Associate director at Kinghams, Adrian Rathbone, expects them to fetch between £400 and £600.

He said: “There is considerable interest from collectors in Queen Victorian memorabilia and the fact the pins were a personal gift with solid provenance, much interest is anticipated.”

The set will appear as lot 13 in Kinghams’ Fine Jewellery, Watches and Designer Goods auction on February 24.
