Title Prussian drum hanger
Nationality German
Period c 1870
Sold

This bronze drum hanger, strongly influenced by the French Napoleonic model, was carried post-Waterloo through to WW1 by the Prussian army. The iron hooks are heavily corroded, but the bronze eagle is in relatively good shape for its age. This was worn by the drummer on a leather strap across the shoulder.

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

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
