    BAVARIA – PICKELHAUBE – RESERVE OFFICER – CHEVAULEGERS OR SCHWERES-REITER-REGIMENT

    SKU: 04-752 XKA

    $4,995.00 $4,495.00

    This is a fine Bavarian Reserve Officer’s pickelhaube from a Chevaulegers or Schweres-Reiter-Regiment. The helmet would have been correct for any of the regiments listed below.

    2. Schweres-Reiter-Regiment
    1. Chevaulegers-Regiment Kaiser Nickolaus con Rußland
    3. Chevaulegers-Regiment Herzog Karl Theodor
    5. Chevaulegers-Regiment Erzherzog von Österreich
    7. Chevaulegers-Regiment Prinz Alfons

    Each of these five regiments used gold-toned furniture. As these Chevaulegers-Regiments were all “odd-numbered” regiments, their even-numbered counterparts (Chevaulegers-Regiment Nrs 2, 4, 6, and 8) used silver-toned furniture. The 1. Schweres-Reiter-Regiment also used silver-toned furniture.
    The helmet’s leather body is in fine condition, generally. Some small imperfections and shrinkages in the front and rear visors are present. The quite typical settling of the leather where the large cruciform is attached is not as pronounced on the leather body’s top. All in all, it is a lovely leather body. Like all Bavarian officers’ pickelhauben, it has a squared-front visor rather than the Prussian-style rounded front visor (except for Prussian Dragoner-Regiments and General officers’ spiked helmets). All of its furniture, including the wappen, chin scales, cruciform, officer’s stars, trim and tall, fluted spike (capable of being dismounted for the attachment of a trichter and horsehair bush) are made of brass.
    The wappen features a pair of rampant Bavarian Lions holding between their paws a shield on which the reserve officer cross appears. While the shield is brass, the oversized cross is silver-toned. Mounted on the cross’s center is a smaller shield displaying the Bavarian state flag’s checkerboard design. The chin scales are convex, differentiating it from an Infanterie spiked helmet. The exterior’s final details are the correct officer’s State’s and Reich’s kokarden, which both exhibit some chipping to their paint.
    The helmet’s interior displays a dark leather sweatband that has seen moderate use. An unusual light-green silk liner (in excellent condition) is attached to the sweatband. All of the correct hardware is present beneath the silk liner. NO double holes are present.
    This is a well-preserved Kavallerie officer’s pickelhaube that was produced prior to WW I and remains in fine condition.

    BAVARIA – SHOULDER BOARD – GENERALOBERST IN THE RANK OF GENERALFELDMARSCHALL – INFANTERIE-REGIMENT NR 8 – ONCE OWNED BY GROßHERZOG FRIEDRICH II

    SKU: 23-470 XKA

    $1,395.00 $1,185.75

    This  single shoulder board, that was once the property of Baden’s Großherzog Friedrich II (1857-1928), is very rare and desirable shoulder board for this well-known member of German royalty.

    Großherzog Friedrich II was Baden’s final ruler who, like all of the Imperial German heads of state, was swept from his throne with WW I’s end. Along with Hesse-Darmstadt, Baden had the largest military after the four Imperial German Kingdoms (Prussia, Bavaria, Württemberg, and Saxony). Friedrich II was the Regimental Chef (Patron) of more than one regiment, as he was of Bavaria’s 8. Infanterie-Regiment Großherzog Friedrich II. von Baden in this instance. The regiment was founded in 1753 and garrisoned at Metz, where it was attached to the Bavarian II. Armeekorps. Although he was the regiment’s royal patron, his royal cypher did NOT appear on its shoulder boards (the regimental number did so, instead).

    The shoulder board measures 1 ” x 4 ¼.” It features two Russian-style gold bullion ropes, with a single band of silver bullion in between them. The silver bullion features the blue chevrons that identify the boards as Bavarian. An “8” appears in the shoulder board’s center. Two silver-toned pips appear above and below the numeral, for a total of four. [Silver-toned pips indicated an à la Suite officer, confirming the unique rank that was strictly reserved for members of royalty. Gold pips were used for field officers]. The board’s reverse reveals a strap that allowed it to be slipped onto a tunic. Some mothing appears on the strap’s side. Its underlay is made of red felt.

    BAVARIA – STATUE – RAMPANT LION

    SKU: 26-27

    $1,495.00 $1,395.00

    It is an oversized statue of a rampant Lion of Bavaria. It is made of base metal which has a coating of gilt over it. The Lion stands 10 1/2″ tall from its base to the tip of its mane. The Lion is mounted on a wooden base which is a further 2 1/4″ tall so the overall height of this presentation is 13″. The Lion is attached firmly to the base. The consignor tells me that this piece was used as a finial at a castle and displays the might and bravery of Bavaria. It weighs a whopping 9 ½ lbs. and is very well made with excellent detail. Due to the weight and the size additional shipping may be required depending on to where it will be shipped.

    BAVARIA – ULANKA – LEUTNANT – PARADE – ULANEN/CHEVAULEGERS REGIMENT

    SKU: 15-691 XRH

    $1,895.00 $1,516.00

    BAVARIA – ULANKA – PARADE – LEUTNANT – ULANEN/CHEVAULEGERS REGIMENT. This is a consignment item.

    It is an exceptional ulanka that would be correct for any of the Bavarian Regiments listed below.

    1. Ulanen-Regiment Kaiser Wilhelm II.
    1. Chevaulegers-Regiment Kaiser Nicholas von Rußland.
    3. Chevaulegers-Regiment Herzog Karl Theodor.
    5. Chevaulegers-Regiment Erzherzog Friedrich von Österreich.
    7. Chevaulegers-Regiment Prinz Alfons.

    These two Bavarian Kavallerie types (Chevaulegers and Ulanen) were considered light cavalry. [They were designated Lancers in the Imperial British Army, due to the lances that they originally carried]. Both types sported ulankas, as did Prussia’s, Saxony’s, and Württemberg’s Ulanen Regiments. The ulanka was far different from all other Imperial German Army tunics. Its front was decorated with a double row of buttons that formed a “V” shape. This not only slimmed its wearer’s torso, but made his shoulders appear broader and his overall appearance more muscular.

    The ulankas worn by the Prussians, Saxons and Württembergians were dunkel-blau (dark-blue) in color up until the wartime conversion to feldgrau tunics. The Bavarian Army’s Ulanen, however, sported very dark-green ulankas. [PLEASE NOTE: it is such a dark green that it appears black in the accompanying photographs]. For this particular tunic, its contrasting trim and lapel lining is crimson-red. The prerequisite double row of fourteen (seven per side) gold-toned buttons decorate the front. A single button appears on each cuff. A further six (three per side) appear on the rear vent flaps. Crimson trim runs down from the reverse’s shoulder area to highlight the vent. A smaller gold button secures each epaulette to the ulanka’s shoulders.

    The collar, cuffs, and trim are all crimson, serving as accents against the tunic’s dark-green background. Since our ulanka is set-up in parade configuration, its shoulders are mounted with epaulettes rather than everyday/garrison-use shoulder boards. The crimson epaulettes sport gold metal crescent moons and gold trim. NO regimental designation is indicated, as is correct.

    The ulanka’s interior reveals a beautiful, black, silk liner. The tunic’s overall condition is beyond excellent. You will be hard-pressed to find a better officer’s parade tunic, and upgrading will never be a concern.
