    Description

    Victorian Era British South Salopian Yeomanry Cavalry Troopers Helmet. Silvered metal body, the edges trimmed with gilded metal bands. Additional garlands of gilt floral trim accents are applied to the front and rear visors, vertically at the rear of the helmet, and around the circumference of the helmet. The lavish regimental helmet badge is comprised of a wreath of gilded leaves surmounted by a large gilt Victorian crown. The regiment's distinctive badge - three lion's heads bordered by an Order of the Garter with the regiment's name "SOUTH SALOPIAN YEOMANRY", set upon a German silver star, provides the central motif. A gilded floral accented plume base and black horsehair plume top this beautiful helmet. Leather-backed gilded chinchains are attached to the helmet by two gilded rosette bosses. The helmet is complete with brown leather liner and tie string. No maker's mark or other regimental property marks are present. The helmet body has a few trivial small dents, otherwise it is in excellent condition.
