Circa 2000 - textile, leather, metal - In a very good condition
Very beautifully made Napoleonic Shako, detailed, very precisely made after the (not to be found and virtually priceless) original from 1813.
After Napoleon had lost the majority of his experienced army during the campaigns in Russia and Spain in 1812, it was necessary to replenish his army with new recruits. In order to maintain the normal social relationships within the army, the upper middle class and nobility in the occupied territories were summoned to accommodate young men in the ‘Garde d'Honneur’. One was no longer allowed to swap with someone else. The cost of the prescribed deluxe uniforms was at your own expense. There was therefore not much enthusiasm to respond and many of the drafted young men were spontaneously found to have all kinds of ailments and defects. The Netherlands provided slightly less than 500 guards in 1813.
The height is 30 cm (including pompom).
The diameter is 18 cm at the bottom, and 26 cm at the top.
This shako could possibly also be used for re-enactment.
Will be shipped by registered post.
