Title King's Royal Rifle Corps officer's astrakhan hat plume
Nationality British
Period c 1900
Sold

This fine plume of red osprey feathers over black vulture feathers, with its original plume boss in black and white metal, and its tin, would have been worn with the black astrakhan side cap of the KRRC in the late 19th century and on into the early 20th in full dress until 1914.

It is in excellent condition, thought the feathers are slightly soiled at the ends.
