    British Tunic 1903 Manufacture. Real? Or something else...

    Recommended Posts

    Hi all; 


    I came upon this at an estate sale in Long Island, New York USA. I doubt that it's truly what it purports to be, and the coat was made in 1903. Can anyone shed light as to its authenticity? I bought spears, shields and a fighting knife, supposedly Zulu, from the same era at the sale. Even if the items don't date to the era, I will enjoy them. Here is the tunic for your perusal. 


    Thank you

    Indeed Chris--the former owner had a major gallery in his home devoted to the Zulu wars...unfortunately the letters of authenticity on many of the pieces were stolen at the estate sale. The owner passed away in 2007, but I believe the tunic to be from 1903, the date on the tag, with all the alterations made for reenactment or just for display.


    Thanks Chris!
