Kaiserliche Marine, Steuermann Photo

Recommended Posts

A period photo of a Steuermann - Portépéeunteroffizier. Slightly faded brown tones. The dark blue cloth shoulder pieces have gilded crossed ancres for Steuermann rank and branch. He is wearing two decorations, presumably the Iron Cross 2nd Class and the Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz. The peaked cap has the gold woven cockade with Imperial Crown in the version for the Deckoffiziere (non-commissioned).  Rare to find such photos over one hundred years later.
The photo came in a very old matt grey painted frame, which had been secured with modern tape to the rear, glass was broken, so now removed. Came from a second-hand shop for 4,50 €
