A Very Rare Lancers Band Officer's Pattern Chapka Prototype by Firmin & Sons.

Item Description

An extremely scarce, if not unique Lancer's officer's pattern chapka. This piece of British Army headgear was created by the famous Firmin & Sons, believed to be a prototype design put forward for use in the Lancer's band. This piece is featured on the Firmin & Sons website (pictured below albeit with a black feather plume).

The hat itself is of exceptional quality with melton cloth covered mortar board top, laborious gilt lace and thread work as well as lion head bosses supporting a velvet backed chinstrap. The huge scarlet feather plume appears to be earlier but fits the cap well.

A truly wonderful item which is bound to be a real collectors piece in the future, and a fraction of the cost of a period officer's pattern cap.

Combined postage is always considered with multiple purchases.

All my items are sold 'as is'. Please contact me requesting a condition report PRIOR to bidding. If you require any more information or photographs, please contact me prior to bidding or buying. Remember that bidding is a commitment to buy based on the information supplied here as well as acceptance of my postage and packing costs.

Important

I cannot insure items up to the sale value due to Royal Mail and UK Courier's insurance claim policies. If I needed to make a claim for damaged parcels I can only claim to the value of the COST of the item and not the SALE value. Due to the nature of my business, the difference in these values can sometimes vary greatly. I can not and will not be held responsible for either Royal Mail or any other Courier's failings. I do however send my items using a tracked service in all cases regardless of value.

If you as the buyer wish to insure your item for the sale value then I will obtain a quote and invoice you appropriately in the understanding that if the item is damaged or lost by the carrier it is your responsibility to pursue a claim. Please see Royal Mail's website for further details. You can also obtain the relevant forms from this link in the unlikely event of having to make a claim via Royal Mail.
I ask that all payments are made within 48 hours of auction end. All International payments must be made via Paypal or International bank transfer. If any UK buyers wish to make payment via a method other than Paypal, it's advisable to contact me before the auction ends.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
