Kürassier Regiment Nr. 4 private purchase cap

Recommended Posts

A fine quality private purchase soft cap either for Kürassier-Regiment von Driesen (Westf.) Nr.4, based in Münster (VII. Armee-Korps).
or possibly Regiment Gardes du Corps in Potsdam, same uniform colours.
Most certainly from K.R.4, as the makers name in silver letting within states: Heinrich Sax, Münster i./W.

Fine quality white and red doeskin cloth, white silk lining with silver embossed makers name and soft brown leather sweatband,
this cap would also have been suitable as a field cap.
General condition is good, with slight wear, two areas of moth damage to white top and one to the band at the rear.
Very rare. Reichscockade is an original replacement, the Prussian cockade slightly restored.

The regiment has a rather nice memorial in Münster, still standing.
