PRUSSIA – SABRETACHE – OFFICER – HUSAREN-REGIMENT NR 4
This is an extremely rare sabretache for an Officer in Husaren-Regiment von Shill (1.Schlesisches) Nr 4 This regiment was raised in 1741 during the reign of Frederick the Great. It was garrisoned in Ohlau and was assigned to the Prussian VI. Armeekorps.
Part of what makes this sabretache so rare is that Husaren-Regiment von Shill (1.Schlesisches) Nr 4 was the only Husaren-Regiment to wear brown. Multiple regiments shared the various other colors to include various shades of blue, red, black, etc.
Another feature of this sabretache (Which was a key component of the dress uniform when the regiment was on parade) is not only its condition but its completeness. All of the color of the bullion tape is vibrant. The reddish brown is also quite nice. On the reverse we see the leather is in fine condition and remains very supple. This same red leather is used for trim on the reverse. We also see that when opened the red leather is used on both halves of the inside where this is place to house a message or dispatch.
Finally as to completeness, all three of the leather belts that attached to the dress uniform are present and in very nice condition. Their leather remains supple.
So this is a sabretache for a very elite regiment which fought in all of the wars that Prussia was engaged in from its formation to the end of the German empire in 1918. And a sabretache that is in excellent condition.
