  2. hello,


    I recently got this helmet out of the woodwork.

    The helmet is in poor condition, but never messed with. The plate is original to the helmet, no extra holes in the leather helmet body.

    Missing his cocardes and chinstrap, the neck flap came lose and the shellac layer is quiet damaged (cracked due to temperature and humidity changes).

    But never the less not often seen, and very pleased with it.

  4. Thanks for your reply. I did some research when I got the painting in , and found that link as well.

    But not much more.

    She did not only ad the feathers, but; cords, medals and buttons too....

    The reason she did so must have been because was this like a art form, to here...

    To me just as bad...


  5. Hey Paul, thanks for your answer.

    I do understand! Pic's where taken true the display case windows of the auction house.

    But I took my chance and won the auction. I will post better pic's on friday, when the medal is home.

  6. It is all about a picture that has been colored and reworked with paint and pencil.

    Without the frame it measures 50 by 62 cm, quiet big!

    It must have cost a arm and a leg back then, just sad they didn't care about it over the past years....

    Still doing some research about it. The artist might have forgotten some details...

    To me it seems like a officer to the 14 th  infantry regiment....
