Title Foreign Service officer's helmet chin chain, 1879 pattern, gilt
Nationality British
Period c 1879 on
Sold

This is the chin chain for the Foreign Service helmet, with a white leather lining. The Home Service helmet chin chains normally had a dark blue velvet lining.

It is in excellent condition, but the gilt finish is a little tarnished, with spots of verdigris here and there. The stitching, however, is in good order, even if the leather has shrunk a little.

testimonials

Received the mannlicher steyr knife bayonet today, very pleased with it and compliments my rifle perfectly. Many thanks for your speedy delivery.

The package arrived today, and the two items are nice. The Mother Cross actually looks a lot better in person than in the pics.
