CIVIL WAR OFFICER’S SASH

$450.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 480-206

This is the regulation Civil War sash for all officers below the rank of general in all branches of service except the medical staff and, occasionally, chaplains. It is a necessary accompaniment to any officer’s sword or frock coat and would look great with a set of shoulder straps for display. This is of typical wartime construction, with the body made of woven of crimson silk, and was to be tied around the waist and knotted on the left hip, with the tasseled ends hanging down, with the exception only of officers serving as officer of the day, who were to wear them over the shoulder as an indicator of their post.

This still has very good crimson color remaining on the body of the woven silk sash, which shows just a two or three wear spots that are pretty much concealed when folded, either flat or as worn around the waist. The end knots preserve complete the woven turkshead knots and tassels, which do show some slight wear, from movement against the leg when worn and a common, slight color shift toward maroon from oxidation and the use of different vegetable dye lots, though the color difference is not that striking.

This is a very good example of a key part of an officer’s regulation uniform. [sr] [ph:m]
