A Saxon First World War Transport Visor Named to Peter Rabus

This fine quality cap has two rows of red piping, with the body of the cap fabricated from black wool. It is fronted by a Saxony gilt aluminum cockade with a green felt centre, the crown above with a Second Reich gilt aluminum cockade with a painted black base incorporating a raised silvered ring and a red felt centre. The upper on the visor is black vulcanfibre, exhibiting light crazing, the underside is synthetic and finished in a reddish-brown colour. The sweatband is paper with a black patent finish and is untied where the two ends meet. The dome itself has a light blue rayon liner, the maker mark in silver ink with some of the type visible but most of it has faded with time and wear, with "Peter Rabus" merchant stamps in blue ink on either side. The underside of the sweatband at the front has the owner's label in black ink on a slip of paper, attached to the facing light blue rayon lining. Overall, it measures 250 mm x 250 mm x 102 mm in height. The vulcanfibre visor exhibits chips on the front edge, the sweatband with crazing and small nips throughout and the rayon dome is soiled from active use. However, it continues to exhibit smooth quality in the wool, plus quality workmanship, maintaining its original period look, better than very fine.
