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-plated court shoe buckles
- English
This is a particularly nice pair of buckles, which typically would have been worn at court or on special occasions. The base is silver-plated bronze with ormolu ornaments (the gilt elements on the frame).

militaria item Royal Navy document box
- British
This little tin box would have held a Royal Navy warrant document for Warrant Officers. As far as I know they were introduced into RN service in about 1820. The Admiralty seal is impressed in the body of the box, which, along with the lid, are both constucted of tin with lead solder seams.

militaria item KuK paper knife
- Austrian
The hilt incorporates the arms of Hungary and various arms of Austria (introduced 7 November 1915), with the motto 'Indivisibiliter ac inseparabiliter'. On the back is 'Geschutzt' (= patented) Hirschler' and the blade is stamped 'Offizielle Kriegsfursorge' (official war fund) - ie it is an official piece for raising money for the war effort.

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 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.
