19th century

militaria item Sabretache ornament, Saxon?
- German
I think this is a badge (13.5 x 9.5cm) off an undress sabretache, ie plain leather, possibly at the time of Johann, King of Saxony (hence JR), 1854-73. It may be an unfinished piece, inasmuch as there are no fixing points on the reverse. It would appear to be a cast bronze, hand finished badge.

militaria item 1st/2nd Prussian Life Guard Hussars busby banner
- German
This was worn above a large white metal death's head skull on the pelzmutze / sealskin busby of this unit. They were worn from at least the mid-19th century to 1918. There are some marvellous photograhps showing the princesses of Prussia in the Edwardian era wearing these busbys on the steps of one of their palaces!

militaria item Bavarian NCO pickelhaube plate
- German
This is a typical private purchase piece, die-struck in gilding metal with a light gilt wash, with screw post reverse as opposed to soldered loops on issue helmets. It would have been worn on the infantry or dragoon helmet by an NCO or perhaps an 'einjahriger' volunteer/officer candidate.

militaria item 1st Foot Guards Fusilier Battalion mitre cap ornament, ORs?
- German
This was introduced in 1848 when the Kaiser Alexander Guard Grenadier regiment(1st Prussian Foot Guards) raised a Fusilier battalion in addition to their numbers. Three of these were worn: one at each side and one at the rear of the mitre cap. The original battalions wore flaming grenades in the same places. The officer's version was gilt.

militaria item Landwehr cross, officer's field cap
- German
This impressed silver cross (5cm square) would have been worn in the 19th century, anywhere from Waterloo through to the Franco-Prussian war of 1871. It would probably have been worn on the soft field cap or shako. It doesn't have the usual logo of Mit Gott etc. However, it is almost certainly a Prussian example on account the Maltese cross design.
