OFFICER’S CRIMSON SASH

$975.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 480-205

This sash, using an open netting over the top of the knot that extends down to form the tassels, probably dates about the period of the Mexican War. Earlier sashes tended to be flat and Civil War sashes tend to have the knots covered in narrow bands of the same flat weave at the body of the sash, though they were privately purchased and there was like some variation in specific construction at every period. The regulations of 1851 established the rule of general officers wearing buff sashes and all others wearing crimson. So, this would be appropriate for officers of every rank below general in every branch of service, though medical staff wore green and chaplains occasionally wore blue. It was specified that the sash was to be worn around the waist with the knots on the left hip, the only exception being the officer of the day, who would wear his sash over his shoulder while on that duty.

This is a great example with good color and no stains or tears. It would pair nicely with an officer’s sword.  [sr] [ph:m]
