SKU: 15-595

$5,295.00

This is a dress or parade uniform for the Oberst and commanding officer of Küraßier-Regiment Herzog Friedrich Eugen von Württemberg (Westpreuß.) Nr 5. It was one of the older line Küraßier-Regiments, founded in 1717. It is interesting that the Regiment was garrisoned in three separate areas, which included Riesenberg, Rosenberg, and Deutsch-Elau. The Regiment was assigned to the XX. Armeekorps. The tunic’s color is white. It has the high collar unique to Küraßier-Regiment tunics. A wide band of silver bullion runs down each side of the tunic’s center. Within that wide band are two narrow bands of light rose. The tunic secures with a series of hook and eye attachments that, when secured, leaves a smooth center without buttons. The same theme of silver bullion is carried forward to the collar and to the sleeve cuffs. Two silver buttons also appear on each cuff. The epaulettes have a silver moon-shaped device. Within the moon we see a white wool surface. On that white background, we see an Oberst and Regimental Commander’s twin pips. This is confirmed by the loose silver ringlets that extend down from the silver moon device. On the reverse we see the rose colored trim in the area of the vent. Also in this area are six silver-toned buttons. As to condition, this is not quite as fine as we would prefer. The front is in very good condition. The reverse has extensive moth tracing that extends over much of it. While this is a pity, the tunic displays well from the front. It is quite unusual to find a tunic for an officer of this rank who served as the Regimental Commander of Küraßier-Regiment Herzog Friedrich Eugen von Württemberg (Westpreuß.) Nr 5.
