Title Westminster Dragoons chin strap, officer's
Nationality British
Period c 1803
Sold

This is a chin strap for the Light Dragoon helmet with black bearskin crest and dark blue silk turban, worn by this celebrated unit in the Regency period. Sadly, there is only one, a rare survivor from those days. It is in old Sheffield plate, with its original velvet lining.

Its condition is excellent, but it is tarnished with age.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
