ephemera

Contemporary magazines, drill manuals, regimental and unit histories, photos and photograph albums, postcards, drawings and prints, army lists (of officers, principally American, British, French and German). My personal interest here is in Napoleonic era prints and drawings of uniform studies.

Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

militaria item Pair of silver shoe buckles by William Eley
- British
This is a classic pair of Artois-style buckles from the end of the American Wars, but probably pre-dating the French Revolution of 1789. Eley (worked from 1770, died in 1824) of Clerkenwell Green, London, a silversmith, was the king of 18th-century bucklemakers and the inventor of the patent spring clip mechanism.

militaria item Porcelain beer stein, Wurttemberg Pioneer Battalion 13
- German
This is a little unusual, being the pontoon company (no. 4) of the 13th Pioneer Battalion (Wurttemberg) of the German Army. It is dated 1909-11, denoting the two-year conscript service of Pioneer Steeb who had this made as a souvenir by R. Kahle of Ulm-on-Danube (maker mark under hinge of lid). The base has the traditional lithophane.

militaria item Winterhilfswerk ceramic birds and butterflies
- German
Winterhilfswerk (WHW) was a state organisation dedicated to the relief of the poor and the homeless during the winter months (October to March). Little hand painted ceramic figures (originally on pins), of which these are representative, were given out by WHW personnel in the street in exchange for contributions.

militaria item By-knife fork for Highland dress dirk
- Scottish
This would have been part of a by-knife set from the scabbard of a Scots dirk. Together with a small knife of matching design, the set would have been mounted on the outer face of the scabbard, normally one above the other. The dirk would have been mounted en-suite with a large citrine as a pommel.

testimonials

Bayonets arrived safely just now! Really, they're great, and I will definitely buy from you again.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
