    Description

    Royal Saxon 1st Life Grenadier Guards No. 100 Regiment Officers' Spiked Helmet. A beautiful example, constructed rather differently than the typical contemporary spiked helmet in that the leather of the body is a bit thinner but reinforced on the interior with a cruciform-shaped galvanized metal support. The helmet measures 11-inches tall. The helmet is trimmed in silver, denoting the configuration associated with the 100th regiment. The front plate features a large silver guard star with the gilt crest of the Royal Kingdom of Saxony separately applied. The plate is mounted to the helmet with threaded posts and small, square retaining nuts. No additional holes are in the body. The 4 ¾-inch spike sits atop a circular base mounted to the helmet by four star-head retainers. A silvered spine runs the length of the back of the helmet. The front visor is trimmed in silver with a green underside. The rear visor has a red underside. The helmet has silvered, flat chinscales and plain rosettes. Both cockades are present. 2-inch wide leather sweat band and silk head lining. No size or maker marks readily visible.

    Condition: Excellent. A fine example with little sign of use and the only little wear likely from storage. There is a small dent in the thin leather underneath the rear spine but otherwise this is a fantastic example in choice collector condition. From the collection of J. T. Hamrick, M. D.
