CIVIL WAR HIGH QUALITY FRENCH PATTERN SHAKO

Civil War shako cap image

 

Almost Unblemished Original Condition! 

PRICE $1200.00 plus shipping to 48 contiguous States $30.00

Dimensions 5 ¾” H x 5 ½” W x  9” D. Add 2 ¾” for pompom                  Weight 12 ounces

Presented is a stylish Civil War Union infantryman’s shako in outstanding original condition and made to the highest standards that were used during the early days of the War. Several Pennsylvania infantry units and regiments in New York's Excelsior Brigade were known to have worn these shakos. What sets this shako apart from others of similar design is its near perfect condition and very high quality construction and its special features. At the top is a 2 ¾” tall, light blue and yellow pompom resting over a three dimensional, 2”, blue, white and red French style cockade, over which rests a dramatic 4” x 4 ½”, stamped brass, gilded and painted plate on the front featuring a right facing spread American eagle. The eagle has a shield with 13 stars, and below, an infantry bugle centered on a black background. The pompom has a light stain, top to bottom, on its left side. The badge has most all its gilding remaining and 95% of its painted finish. All the exterior leather joints are covered by double stitched leather bands making a rigid structure which has stood the test of time.

The strong and unbroken visor’s bottom is painted green and has a ¾” E which stands proud. The 2 ¼ high hat band shows considerable wear and one small hole at the rear. The adjustable chin strap is intact and there is one broken head strap. The interior construction is cardboard all of which is in excellent condition with tight, unbroken stitching. The  size 3 ½ is stenciled at the rear and 29 + by ink below, the European equivalent. There are no other marks. There are vent holes on the right and left side near the top.

This is a fine, highest quality, original, Civil War ‘French pattern’ shako as used during the early stages of the Civil War. It will make an outstanding display or as an excellent addition to any military headgear collection.

Provenance: A deaccession from a large Civil War museum collection
