A Beautifully Crafted Boer War Spectacle Case From Bermuda

5,000.00

VAN NIEKERK, H. J.

Bermuda July 16, 1902

Well made spectacle case in two parts that slide open. The obverse and reverse have a finely carved incised triangular and ruled border with extra foliated decoration at extremities with the legend ‘KGV (Krygsgevangene) H. J. van Niekerk and the reverse of case ‘Bermuda 16.7.1902’. In very fine pristine condition. Two burghers of that name and initials are listed. One served in Cmdt Bester’s Commando and the other in the Hoopstad Commando.

Items from Bermuda are scarcer than those from other P.O.W. centres.
