Title Prussian general's epaulettes, Hohenzollern family provenance
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Price £400.00

This is a pair of full general's epaulettes for wear on the field grey tunic, introduced in 1907. These formerly belonged to General Wilhelm von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, Prince von Hohenzollern (1864-1927). The twin stars and triple braided bullion cords indicate his rank. The black fleck on the silver bullion indicates Prussian service.

Each measures 2.5" across by nearly 4.25" long. The condition is near mint - I've never seen a pair of general's epaulettes before in such nice shape.

These were bought by an old friend from Schloss Sigmaringen, seat of the Princess Sigmaringen-Hohenzollern, a cadet branch of the royal Prussian house. There is paperwork to prove this, only my and my very reliable and reputable friend's word for it!

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
