Voznesensky Czapka

Recommended Posts

Hi , Picked this up a few days ago and was looking for a few opinions , looks period to me circa 1880 1900 possibly Voznesensky Uhlan Regiment . The chin strap is stamped BM ! no other makers stamp anywhere . Looks too good to be a copy , brass helmet plate worn but with fine detail , leather has some crazing indicating age . Anyone has any idea regarding the brass plate dated 1831 ? 

Many Thanks Rick

Hi Rick! Its not a Voznesenskiy Ulan Regiment. The colors of chapka and the plate say that it was 10th Odessan ulan regiment. The plate is "For Warshaw uprising 1831". 

Best Regards

Anton

Welcome to the GMIC, Stalker.  And thank you for the identification.  Given that you read Russian, you could become a popular guy here!

Rick, that's a stunner!  Thanks for posting it.
