French Cavalry Epaulette?


Recommended Posts

I've owned a pair of silver plated brass epaulettes with silver bullion fringe for some time and think they are probably French cavalry. Additional details are of interest and I send my appreciation for your research and response.

Hi Donald,

Thes is very nice Pair of Epaulettes.

In my opinion they are more likekly to be Italian Epaulettes.--and most likely high ranking officer -the treads are very thick

The text on your second listing is in Italian

Look for any Makers marks or Silver content marks The ones made with pure Silver plates (Mark A32S) are more valuable

This might give you a clue.

..also go to EBay.it ..in the Categories page .click Colizione ..then go to Militaria ..then write in the upper box Spallini ,,and you will see few of those for sale.

Regards

Graf

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
