This is pair of Kapitänleutnant dress epaulettes for the Kaiserliche Marine’s dress uniform. The epaulettes are very large and impressive. Each of them displays a gold background at the epaulette’s top, on which is mounted a Kapitänleutnant’s silver double pips and a large, silver, fouled naval anchor. In addition, each epaulette features dangling gold braid fringe, further confirming the rank. The epaulette’s reverse is lined in dark-blue wool. The wool lining on both epaulettes shows some minor mothing. A brass clip is anchored into the epaulette’s bottom so that the epaulette can be slipped onto the uniform. The section of the epaulette containing the clip is made of leather. The epaulettes are housed in a very deep storage carton when not mounted to the officer’s uniform. The epaulettes are set on a pedestal in the carton and tied in place so they will not shift during movement. The carton has protected the epaulettes over the many years since the last the last time they were worn. They would make a wonderful addition to any Navy or shoulder board collection.
