Title Prussian artillery officer's helmet cover
Nationality German
Period c 1907-18
Price £175.00

This is a near mint example in field grey cloth of an artillery officer's pickelhaube cover, which was introduced mainly for potential war-time service in 1910 when the field grey uniform came into service. It is marked 'DRP' on the inside of the lining, which could be the owner's initials or possibly a maker's mark.

The other ranks version had metal hooks to secure it to the helmet and usually a number stitched to the front indicating the unit.

Pro rata, artillery examples are considerably harder to find than infantry.

The RFC buttons are Wonderful, thank you.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
