~ Model 1870 Austrian Dragoon Officer's Dress Helmet ~

The helmet has a black tin skull. It has a large double-headed Habsburg eagle front plate with the initials 'FJI' (of the emperor Franz Joseph I) on the Austrian coat of arms. There are two brass reinforcement "ribs" on each side of the skull.

The same 'FJI' initials can be found on the comb in cipher which is decorated with a lion battling a snake scene to either side.

The chinscales are decorated with oak leafs and lion head rosettes. 

All the exterior parts are gilded.

Inside there is a leather band and cream silk line. The reverse of the front visor is painted green. 

~ Dimensions ~

The helmet height is 25 cm (9.9 inches), it's length is 24.5 cm (9.7 inches) and it's width is 17 cm (6.8 inches).
The weight of the helmet is 565 grams.

~ Condition ~

The helmet is in good used condition for it's age.
One of the reinforcement 'ribs' is loose at the top end but can be easily fixed. The comb was a larger crease on the top/central and more minor ones towards the rear.
The lacquer is burned on a small section (approx 1 cm) to the rear, right.
The lining is in very good condition apart from one small tear.

~ History ~

The word dragoon originally meant mounted infantry, who were trained in horse riding as well as infantry fighting skills. However, usage altered over time and during the 18th century, dragoons evolved into conventional light cavalry units and personnel. Dragoon regiments were established in most European armies during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The historic Geman, Russian and Austro-Hungarian dragoon regiments ceased to exist as distinct branches following the overthrow of the respective Imperial regimes of these countries during 1917-18.

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.
