Title Baden other ranks pickelhaube plate, model 1896
Nationality German
Period c 1896-1918
Sold

The Duchy of Baden was one of the minor German states to survive intact the Vienna Conference of 1814 and on into the second Reich under Wilhelm II. This is the last pattern plate for the Baden pickelhaube, worn throughout WW1.

It has been flattened somewhat to mount on a board and the edges have been curled back a little here and there, but essentially the piece is in good shape without any cracks or splits. The reverse has some age patination of the type you normally associate with gilding metal.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

The pommel arrived safely today... It's a nice little object and really quite tactile... As usual, it was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to finding something else in your stock to tempt me.

The bayonet arrived safely this morning, it's excellent and exactly what I've been looking for, I'm very pleased with it! ... I've bookmarked your site and will keep a regular check to see what you have.
