Title Prussian drum hanger
Nationality German
Period c 1870
Sold

This bronze drum hanger, strongly influenced by the French Napoleonic model, was carried post-Waterloo through to WW1 by the Prussian army. The iron hooks are heavily corroded, but the bronze eagle is in relatively good shape for its age. This was worn by the drummer on a leather strap across the shoulder.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
