Title Prussian artillery officer's helmet cover
Nationality German
Period c 1907-18
Price £175.00

This is a near mint example in field grey cloth of an artillery officer's pickelhaube cover, which was introduced mainly for potential war-time service in 1910 when the field grey uniform came into service. It is marked 'DRP' on the inside of the lining, which could be the owner's initials or possibly a maker's mark.

The other ranks version had metal hooks to secure it to the helmet and usually a number stitched to the front indicating the unit.

Pro rata, artillery examples are considerably harder to find than infantry.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
