Officer schirmütze from Königl Sächs Karbiner-Regiment (2. Schweres-Regiment) from the Kingdom of Saxon. It was founded in 1849 and was housed at Borne (Bez Leipzig) where it was attached to the Saxon XIX. Armeekorps. This was a unique regiment in the German army. Technically as heavy calvary it was considered amongst Kürassier-Regiments. Where most Kürassier-Regiments fought with lances and swords, the Königl Sächs Karbiner-Regiment was considered as mounted rifle men by their very name. But they shared one thing with the Garde-Reiter-Regiment. They wore a similar gold toned helmet with a lobstertail rear visor. But they did NOT wear the massive Lion of the Garde-Reiter-Regiment but rather a white bush or plume when on parade.

  • The cap is a dark blue high quality material.
  • The central black band is a black velvet of the highest quality.
  • There are two small white bands above and below the black velvet.
  • There is one additional white trim band at the very top of the cap.
  • The cap has a black visor and in the center it has the Reich kokarde and the unique Saxon style officer kokarde.

This completes our description of the exterior.

Turning to the interior:

  • We see a medium brown leather sweatband.
  • It has a light brown Silk liner which is 100% complete.
  • There is a small perspiration stain but other than that this cap is in excellent condition.

We have never owned a cap from this regiment much less seen one. This would make a wonderful addition to a collection from this regiment or for a schirmütze collection.
