This is a major’s high-quality frock coat from the 1. Ober-Elsässisches Feldartillerie-Regiment Nr 15. The Regiment was established in 1871. It was garrisoned at Saarburg-Mörchingen, where it was attached to the XXI. Armeekorps. The tunic’s body is made of fine blue wool. It displays red piping, and a double row of six gilt buttons. Its collar is black. No buttons decorate the sleeves. The shoulder boards are of the slip-on variety. They show the braid reserved for the rank of Major through Oberst. It has no pips, but does display the regimental numerical designation, along with the Artillerie’s flaming bomb. The shoulder boards have a red underlay. The tunic’s reverse features four gilt buttons at the vent. Inside, the tunic is beautifully finished with a silk liner. The tunic’s overall condition is excellent. It is a fine example of a prewar frock coat.
