$450.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1179-314

The body of the epaulettes are made of a gold ribbed material that is very clean and free of snags or tears. The body has a border of thick gold twisted bullion that is flanked on both the inside and outside by gold dead bullion. There is a raised brass clamshell that is outlined on the exterior side with a double row of gold dead bullion. The exterior edge of the clamshell area is outlined with two types of bullion material done in an alternating pattern. First there is a section of four strands of bright bullion flanked on each side by four rows of plain bullion wire. This pattern is repeated around the edge. Suspended from the clamshell are coiled gold bullion tassels all of which are in excellent condition.

At the mid-point of the rank field is a silver bullion oak leaf done in bright silver bullion and sequins outlined with gold dead bullion. Both rank insignia are in excellent condition.

The underside of the body is lined with a gold polished cotton while the underside of the clamshell is lined with the same but this area is padded. The attachment bars are of iron.

Both epaulettes are in identical condition as far as cleanliness and wear which is light. They come with the original japanned tin carrying case which is also in good condition but is missing part of the locking mechanism which is minor. [ad]  [ph:L]
