Title KuK tie pin
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1915
Sold

This splendid tie pin encapsulates the elan and enthusiasm with which the officer class greeted the start of WW1. The reverse has the logo 'Aus Eroberten Kanonen' (taken from captured cannon). It shows the Austrian infantry sword of the period, together with a junior officer's shako.

It measures 7.5cm long. The shako would appear to be in gilding metal with enamel and gilt finish. The sword, being magnetic, is made of iron and has most of its nickel silver finish intact, together with a maker's mark 'J.&L.' as well as 'Ges.Gesch.'
