Presenting an exquisite find - the rare mid-war officer schirmmütze of Husaren-Regiment Nr 19 from the Kingdom of Saxony. A true collector's gem, this cap is unique to only one regiment, making it a prized possession.

Crafted from the finest  wool, this cap is a striking shade of light blue, a testament to the quality of materials used in its construction. This was before the feldgrau color became the norm in later years of WWI. What sets this cap apart is that even the typically contrasting large band area is made of the same light blue wool, with only three small trim bands adding a touch of distinction. The cap boasts a sleek black visor, and proudly displays the officer kokarden for state and reich, with the Saxon kokarde adding a unique touch.

The interior of the cap is no less impressive, with a high-quality brown leather sweatband and a dark navy silk liner providing comfort and style. Although the sweatband has lifted in a few areas, it is complete and the cap remains in near-mint condition. We note only a minor moth nip near the reich kokarde and a whisper of moth tracking at the top of the cap.

This tall and elegant cap was a familiar sight in Husaren-Regiments, and is a must-have for the discerning collector.

It would be a perfect addition to a Husaren-Regiment Nr 19 attila. Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of history.


Husaren-Regiment Nr 19 was a cavalry regiment that served in the German Army during World War I. The regiment was part of the Kingdom of Saxony's army, which was one of the constituent armies of the German Empire.

The regiment was formed in 1813 and was garrisoned in Leipzig. It saw action in the Napoleonic Wars and the Franco-Prussian War before being deployed to the Eastern Front during World War I. The regiment was disbanded in 1919 following the end of the war and the dissolution of the German Empire.

The Kingdom of Saxony's army was known for its distinctive uniforms, which were based on the traditional Saxon Hussar dress. The uniforms of Husaren-Regiment Nr 19 featured a light blue tunic and trousers with yellow braiding, along with a tall shako-style cap known as a schirmütze.
