    Imperial German Reservist's Swagger Stick and Pipe. The lot includes a reservist's swagger stick measuring 34¼" in length. The length of the stick is braided in red-white-black cords and the 2" metal finial features a smiling German soldier wearing a krätzchen with the legend: "Es lebe der Reservemann". The long regimental pipe stem measures approximately 32" in length and is constructed of segments of carved horn and turned wood. The porcelain bowl features a colorful patriotic scene and the shoulder strap of the 68th Rheinish Infantry Regiment. The bowl lid is a miniature German spiked helmet. The pipe is named to "Resv. Gfr. Krischel" whose name also appears on the roster. The cork seal which securely mounts the pipe to the stem is absent, otherwise both the swagger stick and pipe are in very good condition.
