This is a consignment item. We have a pair of tunic kragenspiegels for a general officer’s tunic measuring 1 ¾” x 3 ¾.” They were appropriate from a Generalmajor’s level up to that of a Generalfeldmarschall. Each kragenspiegel’s background is made of red felt. The various designs that comprised kragenspiegel are embroidered to the felt in gold bullion. The kragenspiegels’ obverses reveal the slightest hint of moth tracking. You have to look closely to see it. This simply confirms these devices’ honest age.
Their reverses display some actual moth nips. We also can see where the red felt is stitched up over what appears to be a cardboard backing. These are a very important general’s tunic accouterment.
