Title Baden officer's sword knot (portepee)
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Nice example of a standard knot for this state. Red and gold are the state colours of Baden (no other major German state in the Imperial era had red and gold). This knot would have been worn by officers in all branches of the army and, later, in the Weimar period, also possibly by the Baden Police, since the colours remained the same.

Minor staining to the strap and small damage at the apex of same (see photo of acorn).
