Title Dragoon helmet chin chain, 1848 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1848-71

This is the othe ranks, or possibly officer's, chin chain for the 1848 pattern dragoon helmet. It measures just over an inch across, whereas the later 1871 pattern dragoon helmet chin chains are usually noticeably narrower.

It is heavily tarnished and the leatherwork is hanging by a thread and is somewhat fragmentary, but this is probably a piece from the 1860s. The stitching is very worn and elderly, but is is undoubtedly original. The leather has the wasting disease associated with old calf leatherwork.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
