Title Prussian pickelhaube plate, model 1895
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Price £50.00

This would have been mounted on the last pattern pickelhaube as worn in WWI. The original pickelhaube was introduced into the Prussian army in 1848 and was successively modified right through 1914 and beyond, the height of the helmet being repeatedly reduced.

This plate is the penultimate pattern, the very last one being in grey painted pressed tin. This pattern was introduced in about 1896, with the last pattern pickelhaube which went on to serve throughout WWI in grey metal, brass and also in an ersatz format with a stiffened felt shell. There was also a shell in pressed steel which normally had brass or gilding metal mounts.

It is in nice condition and would appear to be made of pressed gilding metal.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
