  • WÜRTTEMBERG – SHOULDER BOARDS – MAJOR – INFANTERIE-REGIMENT Nr 124

    SKU: 23-276

    $675.00

    This is a pair of major’s shoulder boards from Infanterie-Regiment König Wilhelm I (6.Württ.) Nr 124. The regiment was raised in 1673. It was garrisoned at Weingarten, where it was assigned to the Württemberg XIII. ArmeeKorps. The shoulder boards are quite large. Each one measures 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2.” They are made of silver bullion. You will see red/black chevrons on the rope-like bullion, Württemberg’s colors. Mounted in the center of each shoulder board is a crown and König Wilhelm I’s royal cypher. A gilt button is attached to each shoulder board. Red felt backing appears on the reverse, as do the sliders that allow the shoulder boards to be slipped onto a tunic. [One shoulder board has some small problem areas that I will highlight in the attached photographs]. They remain very attractive shoulder boards. They are priced accordingly for an officer of this level, from a well-known regiment that had a history of more than two-hundred-years before WW I began.

  • WÜRTTEMBERG – SLEEVE PATCH – FAHENTRÄGER – PREWAR REGIMENTAL COLOR

    SKU: 15-564

    $1,495.00

    One of the most honored positions within any regiment was the assignment to carry and maintain its regimental standard. All of the European armies (including Germany) had a fascinating tradition in regimental standards. In Germany, regimental banners or standards were authorized and issued by the König, or Kaiser. It had a true history of pageantry to it. In addition to the actual standard/banner, regiments brandished flagpoles adorned with streamers proclaiming the year of the regiment’s establishment, the regiment’s collective battle honors, and brass identification rings. Depending on the regiment, the pole might even have been topped by a Grand Cross of the Iron Cross. The men fought with great pride under these flags. For a regiment to lose its flag in battle was a horrible event. It rained dishonor on ALL the men attached to the regiment, from its regimental commander down to the lowliest private. The man assigned to maintain and carry the regimental banner (Fahnenträger) was highly-regarded by his officers and NCO’s. He bore the standard, carrying it in a special case when it was not unfurled. He was expected to protect the banner with his life. The sight of the banner waving, even in battle, was a rallying point for the regiment’s men. If the color bearer fell during battle, another man immediately snatched-up the banner to show that the regiment was still in the fight. Naturally, a man so honored as to carry the regimental colors was awarded a special sleeve patch designating him as the regimental color bearer (Fahnenträger). As you can see, the number of color bearers in the German Army was very limited, as was this very special sleeve patch. The patch was intended to have been worn on the pre WW I dunkel-blau (dark-blue) tunic’s sleeve. It measures 5″ x 3 ½,” and is in the shape of a shield. It sports a pair of crossed regimental flags, beautifully done in yellow, white, and black thread. Between them is a crown from the Kingdom of Württemberg made of yellow, white, and red thread. König Wilhelm II’s yellow royal cypher appears at the patch’s bottom. It is very elegant and quite rare. [As an aside, regimental banners are greatly prized by collectors. Prices BEGIN at $20,000 for these beauties, when they come on the market. I have seen examples fetch in excess of $50,000. They rarely become available. Many of them were taken to Russia at the end of WW II, and were not released until thirty to forty years after its end]. This is an amazing piece of history and far rarer than a Prussian example.

  • WÜRTTEMBERG – ÜBERROCK – GENERAL der INFANTERIE À LA SUITE – GRENADIER-REGIMENT KÖNIG KARL (5. WÜRTTEMBERGISCHES) Nr 123

    SKU: 15-551

    $2,995.00

    The überrock was a frock coat (longer in length than a conventional tunic) that was used until 1910 (approximately) when it was phased-out by tunics. At first glance it looks like a pre WW I dark-blue tunic. Instead of ending at or near the midriff however, it continues to the knee area. In any event, it is a much longer tunic….
