NCO’S ATTILA FOR A GRAF – HUSAREN-REGIMENT Nr 18 – SAXONY

SKU: 15-540

$795.00

This is an NCO’s everyday attila from Königl. Sächs Husaren-Regiment König Albert Nr 18. It was the senior of three Husaren-Regiments from the Kingdom of Saxony. The Regiment was raised in 1734 and garrisoned at Großenhain. It was attached to the XII. Armeekorps. The tunic is a lighter shade of blue. It has all-yellow tresses and frogging, as well as yellow trim down the tunic’s center and around is edges. A total of ten frosted gilt (five to each side) rosette buttons adorn the attila’s front. Five gilt barrel buttons secure the tunic when it is buttoned. Sewn-in loops on the left breast can accommodate a small ribbon bar. The loops measure 1″ in width. Gold bullion tape appears at the collar as well as on the cuff. Gilt Saxon collar buttons are seen on both sides of the collar. Yellow shoulder straps appear on each side and are secured by gilt-toned buttons. The same yellow trim is seen on the reverse. I do not see any barrel buttons on the tunic’s reverse. Scattered moth damage shows on the attila’s front and back. It is seen in many areas on all parts of the tunic. Although this is a lot more moth damage than we generally offer, we have two reasons why we purchased the tunic and decided to share it with you. The tunic’s interior is quite attractive and sports a most unusual light-blue, silk liner. It seems to me that our young Graf had a sense of style. Inside the pocket is a tag for a tailor in Dresden, the capital city. The tailor has written on the tag “S (or L) Graf Schaffgotsch.” It is also dated 1912, with a garment number of 774. I find it very curious that a man who was a Graf was serving as an NCO. I am sure by the time WW I started he was serving as an officer. It could be a very interesting research project for the new owner. The second reason I bought this is that I was able to buy it very reasonably. Naturally, I am passing the savings on to you.
