    BRAUNSCHWEIG – GOBLET – INFANTERIE-REGIMENT NR 92 – PENINSULA BANDEAU – 9 CM TALL.

    The Duchy of Braunschweig’s Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92 is one of the Imperial German Army’s most legendary units. Its soldiers displayed Totenköpfe (Deaths-Heads) on their headdresses from the Napoleonic times forward. [They also sported menacing black uniforms well into the 1880’s, before transitioning to dunkel-blau (dark-blue) then WW I’s Feldgrau (field-grey) uniforms]. Naturally, members of this regiment wanted to display the Totenköpfe on their personal items as well, such as this marvelous goblet.

    This Braunschweig Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92 Goblet stands 3.5” (9 cm) tall which is much larger than the small Totenkopf-decorated schnapps cups we have offered in the past. Its high-relief Totenkopf is quite bold. Directly below the Totenkopf’s crossed bones is a bandeau for “Peninsula.” The latter was the Napoleonic Wars’ campaign commanded by Great Britain’s Lord Wellington, in which IR 92 and other German regiments won great glory.

    The Braunschweig Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92 Goblet measures 2.25” in diameter at the rim and 1.5” in diameter at its base. Its bottom features its manufacturer’s hallmark, in addition to a hallmark for its .935 Silver content. This is a VERY high-quality, silver-hallmarked vessel from an important regiment.

    BRAUNSCHWEIG – PICKELHAUBE – RESERVE OFFICER – INFANTERIE-REGIMENT NR 92

    SKU: 04-779 XKGJT

    $9,995.00 $8,095.00

    One of the most popular pickelhauben is for the Duchy of Braunschweig’s Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92. This popularity stems from their use of massive Totenköpfe (Death’s Heads) that appear superimposed over their Prussian-style wappens. [PLEASE NOTE: the Totenkopf appeared on only four regiments’ headdresses. These were the 92’s sister unit, Husaren-Regiment Nr 17 (also from Braunschweig), along with the Kingdom of Prussia’s Husaren-Regiments Nr 1 and Nr 2]. This Totenkopf had NOT always appeared on all Braunschweig pickelhauben. Up until 1912, one of the regiment’s Bataillone (Nr III) had employed a beautiful, enameled wappen that featured the profile of Braunschweig’s iconic horse, while Bataillone Nr II and Nr III displayed the Totenkopf. After 1912 all Braunschweig Bataillone converted to the Totenkopf. [Many of these earlier helmets converted their “horse” wappens into Totenköpfe, which is why so few “horse” wappens still exist. That said, we have a simply gorgeous 92nd Infanterie-Regiment “horse” wappen on offer elsewhere]……

    $11,995.00 $7,995.00

    Today we are offering a definite rarity, an Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92 Officer’s Pickelhaube. I know you are more used to seeing Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92 helmets displaying the Totenkopf (Death’s Head), but another version was used earlier by the regiment’s Bataillon Nrs I and II. After 1912, the entire regiment switched to the wappen sporting the Totenkopf. The earlier examples are seen far less often. Although many collectors prefer the Totenkopf wappen, this beautiful helmet deserves equal consideration, primarily because the wappen’s center features enamel on it……
