Bavarian Artillery for Juniors


Recommended Posts

Bavarian Artillery (!) - certainly has the right colours.
Volks - Trachten are also a form of uniform and very traditional in Bavaria, Austria and the other Alpine lands. This is a vintage piece for a junior, all fine light grey wool serge, better known as Loden, with the traditional dark green facings and piping in another colour, unlined, as usual, and with a deep central pleat to the rear (Kellerfalz) and green piped half belt fastened by a single button, similar as found on military greatcoats. The shoulders are also decorated with dark green wings in a reduced form, these shoulder Wülste were worn on Bavarian uniforms before 1886. Complemented by the traditional staghorn buttons and in an extra decorative form holding the button back reveres. Maker's name on tab no longer legible. Probably post-war, but identical to earlier examples, almost mint. An interesting period souvenir. Not a bad pick-up for 5 Euros.
