An exceptional Peers coronet with London Hallmarks for 1831. 

The coronet of traditional form with silver gilt frame and 12 'pearls'. The main body is a cap of crimson velvet with gilt bullion finial. The whole piece sits on a band of ermine with sealskin spots.

The hallmarks suggest this coronet was originally made for the coronation of William IV. The frame and pearls appear original to that period however all 'soft' components to this piece are later. 

The restoration work has been professionally undertaken by Ede & Ravenscroft of London. It's unclear when the work was carried out on the coronet, however it may be possible this was a family piece that was restored for use at Elizabeth II coronation in 1953.

The hallmarks are for Edward Barnard & Sons Ltd (EE over B over JW within quatrefoil) with small date letter q.
