Title Hussar officer's busby plume
Nationality British
Period c 1900
Sold

This is made of white ostrich feathers, with a white vulture feather base, worn by the 3rd, 7th, 13th, 14th and 19th Hussars. These busbys were worn until the end of full dress, perhaps at the Coronation in 1953.

The little gilt collar on the white element of the plume is still present, although partially hidden by the vulture feathers. The ostrich feathers are slightly soiled with dirt and age, otherwise the condition is excellent for its age. Its tin is in quite good shape, with most of its original black paint, and the original linen plume bag is present.

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

testimonials

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.

Swords mattered [arrived?]. I am very content. You still have which good swords for the sale?
