A First War Prussian Regiment Peaked Cap, Named
A First War Prussian Regiment Peaked Cap, Named- This fine quality cap is fabricated from quality doeskin wool, in navy blue colour. It has a row of red piping along the top edge, with an Imperial cockade incorporating a black painted rayed base, topped by a silvered ring and a raised red centre. Immediately below is a wide red wool band that travels the circumference of the cap, with a black and white painted rayed Prussian cockade on the front. The visor is black vulcanfibre, the underside of which is synthetic, crosshatched and finished in red. The headband is leather and the dome is fabricated from a red rayon, with the owners name and regiment on a paper card - making this cap completely researchable. The cap has evidence of intermittent moth invasion, minor contact marks on the vulcanfibre visor, along with light wear on the headband. However, it continues to exhibit smooth quality in the wool, superb workmanship, maintaining its original period look, in near extremely fine condition.
