BAVARIA – EPAULETS – OFFICER – PRE 1850 – STORAGE CARTON
Earliest pair of epaulets we have ever been able to offer – They are for an infantry officer and date to pre 1850. They are most likely for a Lieutenant.
They have a beautifully tarnished silver (may actually be silver) Each epaulet has a silver toned button. The reverse is red wool and has extensive mothing. They come in the bottom half of a storage carton which may or may not be original to the epaulets.
They make for an impressive presentation and considering that they are in excess of 170 years old would make a wonderful addition to any shoulder board/epaulet collection.
