WÜRTTEMBERG – DRESS SASH WITH STORAGE CARTON – OFFICER

SKU: 15-548

$375.00

This is an officer’s dress sash from Württemberg in superb condition. Such a sash was worn about the waist. It has a bullion belt with all the attachments needed for proper sizing. Imbedded in the silver bullion are red and black trim lines, which are the Kingdom of Württemberg’s key colors. Hanging down from the belt are two large “acorns,” similar to what one finds on a sword’s portépée, only larger. Dangling from the acorn’s bottom are plentiful silver, red, and black bullion tassels. Each tassel thread measures approximately 9 1/2″ in length. A sash like this really sets off an officer’s uniform. The sash is housed in a correct period storage carton. The carton has rounded ends and measures 15″ x 3 1/2″ x 3.” It is made of sturdy, heavy-duty cardboard that sports a leatherette exterior. While the carton has received some scuffs over the last one-hundred-years, it is in amazingly good condition. The sash is also in excellent condition, with some normal, expected toning (patina) to the belt’s bullion.
