    $6,995.00 $5,995.00

    It has been some time since we have had the pleasure of offering a pickelhaube from the very small Duchy of Anhalt, Saxony’s neighbor. In 1900, the population of Anhalt was 271,963. Its capital was located in Dessau. Its final reigning Duke was Friedrich II, who ruled from 1904-1918. Anhaltisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr 93 was founded in 1807 during the Napoleonic Wars. Bataillone Nrs 1 and 3 were garrisoned in Dessau, while Bataillon Nr 2 was based at Zerbst. The regiment was assigned to the IV. Armeekorps……

    BAVARIA – PICKELHAUBE – GENERAL – ADJUTANT OR WAR MINISTRY

    SKU: 04-772 XJT

    $7,995.00 $7,500.00

    In keeping with our offering of Generals’ pickelhauben, we present the pickelhaube of a Bavarian General who served either as an Adjutant or at the Bavarian War Ministry. While its basic shape and leather are good, patches of leather are missing between the cruciform’s four arms. Some settling of the crown has occurred at the point where the cruciform is attached, which is a frequent occurrence on helmets that sport large cruciforms. For some reason, we see this occur more on Bavarian helmets than we do on helmets from other states that display similar cruciforms. Its front visor is squared……

  • Sale! BAVARIA - STATUE - RAMPANT LION - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    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.

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

    SKU: 04-779 XKGJT

    $9,995.00 $8,995.00

    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 $9,995.00

    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……

    EMBROIDERED GRAND CROSS OF MILITARY MAX JOSEPH BREAST STAR (REPRODUCTION) – BAVARIA

    SKU: 05-1609 XDG

    $250.00 $195.00

    This is a consignment item. It is a REPRODUCTION of the Grand Cross of the Military Max Joseph. It is embroidered rather than made of metal. Such embroidered breast stars were referred to as “Tinsel Stars” in Germany. Commonly used during the 18th and 19th Centuries, they were most popular prior to the 1840’s.
    Our example measures 4 ½” x 4 ½” and is quite handsome. The later metal versions of the breast star are very rare. One would have to pay $8,000.00+ for one. This MODERN REPRODUCTION serves well as a collection space filler. It should NOT be confused with an original piece.

    ERINNERUNGSZEICHEN für VERDIENSTLICHE LEISTUNGEN IM KRIEGSJAHRE 1866 für ZIVILÄRZTE

    SKU: 05-1589 XDG

    $2,495.00 $1,995.00

    This is a consignment item. It is the Erinnerungszeichen für Verdienstliche Leistungen im Kriegsjahre 1866 für Zivilärzte (Honor Badge for Meritorious Service in War-Year 1866 by Civilian Doctors), which was awarded during the 1866 Austro-Prussian War. It is a pinback award that measures 2″ x 1 3/4,” and is shaped like an oversized cross. Each arm boasts a caduceus, the ancient sign of a physician. In the cross’s center is the war’s year, 1866. König Ludwig (Mad) II was Bavaria’s monarch during the conflict. It is written that he was greatly affected when he witnessed Bavarian soldiers suffering alongside their Austrian, Württembergian, and Saxon compatriots after their defeat by Prussia and her allies. In addition to the creation of this decoration, Ludwig also instituted the Military Merit Order, Military Service Cross, and the 1866 Bavarian War Honor Medal for the same war. This very rare decoration was for doctors who served Bavaria during the conflict. Only forty were created.
