This is a pair of epaulets for a Generalmajor in the Württemberg army. The epaulets for a General officer are large and impressive. They are completely different for those of an Oberst and below and are instantly recognizable when seen. They have tight and massive silver ringlets. For the rank of Major to Oberst along with brass pips to designate the rank they have what I call loose danglers. For the rank of Leutnant to Hauptmann there is nothing aside from the rank designation.

Each epaulets has a gilt crescent which surrounds the top which is a handsome silver brocade with an interesting design. The tongue of each epaulette has a brass button and the red and black of Württemberg.

As we examine the reverse of the epaulets we find very quickly that one of the clips that secure the epaulet to a tunic is missing. We also see on the red pads a number of markings. This indicates to us that they came from either a large collection or a museum.

The final addition is the storage carton. This is not in the best condition and the top is no longer attached. This would be somewhat useful addition for display.

This is a marvelous pair of epaulets for one of the three smaller Kingdoms.
